Workshop on Flood management in a transboundary context, 13-14.12.2011

  1. 1. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011 C.P,. Workshop:Flood management in a transboundary context A Targeted Capacity Building Workshop organized under the Petersberg Phase II /Athens Declaration Process with the support of the German Ministry of Environment and GEF IWLEARN 13 - 14 December 2011, Zagreb, Croatia
  2. 2. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011THE CAPACITY BUILDING WORKSHOPThe Workshop is part of a series of capacity building activities including training workshops andstudy visits that focus on methodologies and experiences on addressing issues of transboundarywater resources management in the framework of the Petersberg Phase II / Athens DeclarationThe aim of these capacity building activities is to enhance the practical capacity of keystakeholders on priority issues of integrated management of shared water bodies, henceassisting in advancing practical application in Southeastern Europe (SEE). Methodologies: The training will be set up around Lectures, Case studies, Facilitated discussions Practice exercise.
  3. 3. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011 CASE STUDY. Practice Objective Practical sessions: Objective: to simulate a transboundary working group on flood management. Phases: Identifying concerns Proposing agreementsa) Work on a Virtual Scenariob) Use lesson learnt from case studies presented by lecturers to be implemented on these scenarioc) The outcomes of the "negotiation" will be then presented by each of the four delegations and discussed in plenary.
  4. 4. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011GUIDELINES CASE STUDY. Practice GuidelinesDuring speaker’s presentations Try to learn as much of possible from other experiences.Theoretical and practrical Take advantages of presented case studies Imagine which concerns mentioned by lecturers can be applied to our case Imagine which succesful or not succesful proposals mentioned by lecturers canbe applied to our case.Discussions: After each lecture, discussions should extract useful ideas to be applied on ourcaseFirst Session Identify concerns Prioritize concerns for negotiationSecond Session Non structural measures Participatory process Proposal of preliminary agreement
  5. 5. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011 CASE STUDY. Practice Identifying concernsPresent and Future Problems, concernsStart with…Threats On going and planned Projects, Imposed risksWeaknesses Lack of coordination Lack of opportunities Climate change consequences
  6. 6. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011Results from phase I: Identifying flood-related concerns by stakeholders in upstream anddownstream sides Main identified concerns From Downstream side1. Illegal construction in floodplains 12. Good flood risk management2. Huge damage costs due to floods 13. Ecological flows3. Lack of money to afford investments by 14. Warning systems local municipalities 15. Destruction of ecosystems4. Emergency plans 16. Sediment control5. Drinking water supply 17. Development6. Critical infrastructures 18. Destruction of investment7. Political attention 19. Application of EU Standards8. Bearing consequences of upstream uses 20. Impacts of floods in specific locations9. Environmental protection. Biodiversity 21. Information for population10. Solid waste washed by floods from basin 22. Structural and non structural measures11. Wetlands (destroyed by floods)
  7. 7. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011Results from phase I: Identifying flood-related concerns by stakeholders in upstream anddownstream sides Main identified concerns From Upstream side1. Flood control 12. Protection and flood management2. Linkages with other water uses 13. Economic development /23. Electricity production 14. Good EIA4. Sediment control 15. Public hearing /2 active participation5. Transboundary management 16. Healthy water6. Delay in adoption of works 17. Financing participation7. Impacts and bothering during 18. Dam safety construction8. Water supply warranted /29. Protection of nature10. Fishways11. Electricity production

  9. 9. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011Dowstream portfolioa) Environmental concerns are consequences from upstream practice, as land-use (soil losses - sediment production), waste-solid policies, ecological flows, .. Downstream part want upstream part to adopt an environmental conservation plan, renouncing to some agricultural developments.b) Operational rules must be implemented since first stages of the project of the new dam in terms of maintaining low levels in the reservoir in rainy stations.c) Bilateral Governance: Fluid interexchange of information, both in real time as well as on ongoing or future projects where Downstream part consider must be considered legitimate stakeholder.

  11. 11. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011 OUR TARGET: To define a list of measures to be taking into account in the agreement To reach an agreement with the counter part on the list to be passed to MinistriesDowstream portfolioDownstream part wants upstream part to adopt an environmental conservation plan, renouncingto some agricultural developments. 1. Soil conservation measures. Stop agricultural practices and new developments 2. Fishways facilities 3. Reforestation programs 4. etc..a) Operational rules must be implemented since first stages of the project of the new dam in terms of maintaining low levels in the reservoir in rainy stations. 1. Devices for flushing (release sediments – when?) 2. Seasonal freeboard for flood control (loss of production)b) Bilateral Governance: Fluid interexchange of information, both in real time as well as on ongoing or future projects where Downstream part consider must be considered legitimate stakeholder. 1. Providing real time data (wich?) 2. Participation in previous stage of projects than could affect us, etc..
  12. 12. Workshop: “Flood management in a transboundary context Zagreb, 13-14th Dec 2011 OUR TARGET: To define a list of measures to be taking into account in the agreement To reach an agreement with the counter part on the list to be passed to MinistriesUpstream portfolioa) Upstream part would like downstream part to stop and control construction in risky areas which could create severe restrictions for flood management 1. Measures to avoid th eocupation of flooding areas 2. Insurances?b) Upstream part claims co-financing for the project of the new dam because it will help mitigating flood risks in downstream areas and will improve the electricity production from reservoirs downstream situated. 1. Mechanism to co-finance (which ones?) 2. Share benefits in both directions. (How?) 3. Any other?c) Environmental services must be taking into account in terms of economic compensation under the WIN-WIN concept, due to better opportunities for economic development will be created in downstream areas. 1. Which Measures thave o be considered as environmental services? 2. How to evaluate the compensation?
