The FRISCO1 project (Cross-Border Harmonised Slovenian-Croatian Flood Risk Reduction 1 – Non Structural Measures) is a strategic project aimed at reducing flood risk in the river basins of the Dragonja, Kolpa, Sotla, Bregana and parts of the Drava and Mura river basins and is implemented in the framework of the Cooperation Programme INTERREG V-A Slovenia – Croatia.
The Cooperation Programme INTERREG V-A Slovenia – Croatia is the main document presenting the framework for cross-border cooperation between Slovenia and Croatia in the financial perspective 2014-2020. The purpose of cross-border cooperation is to deal with common challenges that we have commonly identified in the border area and at the same time take advantage of unused potential for growth and strengthen the process of cooperation for the overall harmonious development of the European Union.
FRISCO1 substantively addresses non-structural measures to reduce flood risk and improve the flood risk management system. Improved and cross-border harmonised flood risk mapping and the elaboration/improvement of cross-border harmonised flood prediction models will provide the necessary expertise and documentation for the proposal and selection of cross-border coordinated structural measures to reduce flood risk, which would be implemented in the second phase of the FRISCO project, i.e. through FRISCO2, in the basins of the Kolpa, Sotla, Drava and Mura rivers.
