Flood prevention and stormwater management

Planning ahead and forecasting future scenarios to mitigate the consequence of climate change

Rising sea water levels and extreme weather conditions make flooding an inevitable consequence of climate change. However, the environmental and social impact of such events can be mitigated by planning ahead and forecasting future scenarios. Although it may be impossible to avoid floods entirely, highly effective solutions for mitigating the effects of flooding exist. Denmark has a strong focus on developing intelligent links between early warning systems and management of stormwater. Our expertise comprises systems for modelling, flood risk mapping, monitoring and early warning, as well as solutions for retention, drainage, pumping and treatment of stormwater. Finally, we have developed several solutions for an effective emergency response to cloudbursts, storm surges and elevated water levels.

We invite you to explore solutions related to flood prevention and stormwater management in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how flood prevention and stormwater management can help solve your environmental challenges.
