nofdp (nature-oriented flood damage prevention) has been designed by the Hessian Ministry for Environment, Rural Areas and Consumer Protection in the context of the EU INTERREG III B program in order to provide means for environmentally oriented flood protection measures. Project partners are the Technical University of Darmstadt, the Federal Institute of Hydrology, the Province of Noord-Brabant and the water associations Brabantse Delta, Aa en Maas, Dommel and Mümmling.
The nofdp IDSS (nature-oriented flood damage prevention Information and Decision Support System) has been designed as a special tool for planners and decision-makers in water associations. Thus, they are provided with an instrument for the preliminary planning phase which allows them to have an integrative view on river catchment areas in order to improve flood damage protection taking aspects of spatial planning, water resources management and ecology into account.
nofdp IDSS provides planners and decision-makers with a series of mostly GIS-based tools.
