The Prefect of the South safety area wants to reunite the working community of flood prevention in the mediterranean arc every year during the national campaign of communication.

In the past, there had had two meetings of this community in October 2016 and 2017.

The working community involves all the stakeholders of flood prevention :

  • the State services (national, zonal, regional and departmental levels) ;
  • some representatives of local authorities and collectivities ;
  • some public and private establishments who are experts in this field (for example : Météo-France, Cerema, l’IRSTEA, Cyprès…).

This community is an opportunity to exchange and to discuss about the successes and the difficulties met during the prevention. It is in a way, to report the results of the past actions, and also, to present and validate the future actions of the inter-regional mission and the territorities. Field experiences are exposed in order to illustrate the successfull actions.
