EU Floods Recovery Programme – Reconstruction and rehabilitation of transport infrastructure
The goal of the project is to assist the country’s recovery efforts in the aftermath of the floods that occurred in early 2015 by reconstructing damaged transport infrastructure.
The “building back better” approach will be used to maximize resilience to future floods and mitigate the risk of floods in priority sensitive regions of the country.
The project will build upon the experiences, results and lessons learned from past projects on emergency coordination support as well as ongoing programmes in the areas of disaster and climate risk reduction and integrated river basin management.
The project will be implemented in close partnership with the Secretariat for European Integration, Ministries of Transport and Communication, Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, Environment and Physical Planning, the Public Enterprise for State Roads, local governments of the affected municipalities as well as the key entities in the disaster risk management system in the country.
The programme provides vital support to ongoing recovery efforts aimed at rehabilitating damaged transport infrastructure and making it more resilient to future flooding. This will have a direct and positive impact on a number of economic activities and on people’s wellbeing.
The EU Flood Recovery Programme aims not only to assist communities in need and to protect the economy from the adverse effects of flooding but also to demonstrate that modern recovery approaches can leave reconstructed infrastructure better able to withstand future flooding.
