Taking part in the competition allows participants and partners to address two (out of the ten) essential actions, namely: a) establishing a coordination mechanism that enables the understanding and reduction of risk from natural hazards based on civil group and citizens’ participation and b) ensure that educational programmes (both formal and informal) are established within schools and local communities.<br /><br />This year, these projects focus only on flood risk knowing that in France half of the municipalities are affected by the floods and about 3.5 million homes are located in a flood zone.
