SCIMAP-Flood tool release

The aim of SCIMAP-Flood is to help with the prioritisation of natural flood risk management or nature-based solutions within the catchment to increase their effectiveness. The tool identifies the origin of the water that contributes to the flood peaks within the catchment since mitigation actions in these locations will be more effective.
