Become familiar with the European acquis as well as with international legal documentsrelated to flood management.2. Understand how climate change, based on the current projections, is likely to affect floodoccurrence and severity; understand how this factor of uncertainty can be introduced/taken inconsideration in IWRM planning.3. Understand the mechanisms of preparedness and mitigation regarding floods and theirapplication in a transboundary context.4. Understand the linkages between hydro-energy production and floods – how managementof dams can be introduced as a parameter in river basin management - reference to good practicesas well as bad examples.5. Management of floods and river basin management - how the first can be integrated in thesecond (reference to good practices in Southeastern Europe).6. The challenges in terms of cooperation at the transboundary level (on the flood managementand preparedness), bad and good examples.
