Governance of Flooding Risks in the Region and the City of Hanover

authored by
Frank Scholles

The article deals with flood protection and flood prevention as a contribution to a more resilient city region in general and in Hanover. Flood protection of Hanover’s city centre has been dealt with since the 15th century. Today, floods are prevented by land-use and sectoral planning of the city region and the mu- nicipality. The regional plan has designed binding priority and reserve zones for flood prevention on the basis of flooding are- as identified by the water management administration. Urban planning has set up an informal local action programme, but a basic update of formal plans, especially the preparatory land- use plan, is missing.
