Improving the conditions for the implementation of flood water retention projects when developing flood risk management and land use, taking into account objectives relating to ecological status and biodiversity.
STATE OF IMPLEMENTATION
Implementation has started. (The implementation of one or more planned elements of the measure is underway.)
Potential for flood water retention has been examined in all flood risk management plans, and flood water retention measures have been proposed in those plans where such measures are considered possible. In addition, the potential for flood water retention has been examined as part of the development of water resources management in forestry, peat production and agricultural areas.
