The Marhetak project was created after the flood disaster of July 2021. It became clear here that water does not stop at the border. The aim of the Marhetak project is to strengthen the cooperation between the euregional services that are legally responsible for crisis management and weather, water and soil public services in times of a flood crisis. EMRIC, as lead partner of the project, works together with the Wallonia Public Service, the NCCN and the Limburg Water Board on the coordination of forecast images, the linking of data sources, the harmonization of risk assessments and crisis communication. The project is concluded with a table-top exercise of a joint crisis management system to share information between the crisis staffs.
