end:  31.10.2018.start:  23.03.2017.
Development of a joint Flood Risk Management Plan in the Sava River Basin is a component of the project "Improvement of Joint Actions in Flood Management in the Sava River Basin", which includes two components:
1. preparation of the Flood Risk Management Plan in the Sava River Basin (Sava FRMP),
2. establishement of a joint Flood Forecasting and Warning System in the Sava River Basin (Sava FFWS).

The project is funded by the Western Balkans Investment Framework (WBIF) and implemented by the World Bank.

The joint Sava FRMP, with all the preliminary steps in accordance with the EU Floods Directive (2007/60/EC), shall be prepared in line with the Protocol on Flood Protection to the Framework Agreement to the Sava River Basin - link, taking into account good practices of cooperation in the field of flood protection in the Sava River Basin, aims to set up common objectives of flood risk management on the basin scale, based on long-term sustainable approaches, and to ensure a consistent and coordinated approach to flood risk management in the Sava River Basin.

It is expected that the Sava FRMP will result with sets of measures (structural and non-structural) relevant for the entire river basin. The Sava FRMP shall compile the measures to be implemented by the countries and, the joint Plan shall among other, asses their impact in transboundary context, their spatial distribution, prioritization, timing and modes of implementation.

The following results have to be achieved:
1. Sava FRMP, including Summary of Measures with all its related components and accompanying documents, in accordance with the Program
2. Public participation
3. A follow-up strategy which would set out proposals for priority activities to guide the work of ISRBC and the Parties within the planning cycles, including further data collection activities and implementation of the measures.
