Today a call for Applications was published with code POSEUR-10-2015-27 directed to the Regional Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources under the Risk and Flood Management Plan (Madeira Autonomous Region).
The Community Directive No. 2007/60 / EC of 23 October, established the framework for the assessment and management of flood risks in order to reduce the consequences associated with floods in the community, harmful to human health, the environment, cultural heritage and economic activity.
That Directive was transposed to national law by Decree-Law No. 115/2010 of 22 October, stating that the state should proceed with the preparation of the following instruments: flood hazard maps; risk maps of floods and flood risk management plans. The River Basin Management Plan for Madeira was completed, published and introduced into the Water Information System for Europe (WISE), but missing elaborate mapping of flood risk and the Flood Risk Management Plan, covering the 27 areas identified critical in WISE, to allow full compliance with EU and national legislation.
It is therefore important that PO SEUR uses the resources available on Axis 2 to contribute to the reduction of the risks of protection against floods effects, the phenomenon associated with the transport of large volumes of sediment, so it was decided to proceed to this Call directed to the Regional Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources of the Autonomous Region of Madeira to prepare the Flood Risk Management Plan of RAM, with the respective cartography.
Applications may be submitted until 18:00 of November 30, 2015 through Balcão 2020.
