The main objective of the project is to increase the level of protection against floods in the c/b area of Greece and Bulgaria and especially in areas with high probability of flood events across the two international river basins of Struma/Strymon and Evros/Maritsa. In order to achieve this main objective, PBs have concluded on a number of sub-objectives which then were transformed into concrete actions. The sub-objectives of the project are:
• improvement/support/maintenance of existing permanent flood protection infrastructure in order to either increase their ability to constrain flood water or facilitate better water flow and therefore reduce the risk of flood
• supply of necessary equipment that will enable PBs to react promptly against imminent floods and constrain the negative effects of water in flood areas
• Enhance the cooperation between competent authorities in the two countries and their capacity to address climate change
