The Flemish Environmental Agency (VMM) is responsible for water management in this Belgian region. Together with Prospex, VMM looks into the future to assess the flooding risks in Flanders in view of the future of land use. VMM engaged Prospex to reach-out and involve the different stakeholders in a multi-layered water management risk reduction strategy. The strategy, supported at the European level, assesses risk incorporating among others, infrastructure, land use, housing adaptation, etc. VMM‘s stakeholders are engaged through interviews and workshops with participatory processes both on the local level and Flemish regional level with the goal of creating an active network for water management risk reduction.
