The discussion of the preliminary flood risk assessment results for the Ukrainian part of the Dniester River basin is scheduled to take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (Kyiv time) on 20 March 2019. Interested parties can register for participation by sending an application at Participants can send their questions and comments on the assessment materials (below) at the same address until 19 March.

If you have any information on previously developed flood maps for any parts of the Dniester River basin, please inform the project team at the same e-mail address or during a teleconference.

All discussion participants will be able to familiarise themselves with the list of areas with potential significant flood risk and determine those of top priority for mapping – developing flood hazard maps and flood risk maps.

For the time being, Konstiantyn Titov and Konstiantyn Danko, Experts of the GEF/UNDP/OSCE/UNECE project “Enabling transboundary co-operation and integrated water resources management in the Dniester River Basin,” have identified 91 potential significant flood risk areas in the specified district. The total length of these areas is 3,753 km. On 11 to 15 March 2019, project experts will hold consultations with local water sector experts in all regional centers of the Ukrainian part of the basin.

Based on the consultation results, a list of top-priority areas of potentially significant flood risk will be published. These areas will be used for mapping and flood risk management within the project.
