The overarching goals of the IMRA project are to influence and change risk perception and the real decision-making in the addressed case study areas actively involving stakeholders and citizens. It aims for producing in doing so best practice examples, which could serve as references for other authorities dealing with flood risk management plans in Europe.

The project aims to develop a methodology for an integrative concept for participatory flood risk management, and to apply it on the three case studies (three different basins with different risk culture). The concept will be validated and discussed with scientific experts and disseminated to policy and decision-makers, as well as to a wider public.

The whole process of assessing and managing flood risks will be reorganised by following the IMRA risk governance concept for participatory flood risk management aiming at the improvement of risk awareness and increased public participation.
