The objective of the Flood Projection Project is to improve the security of economic assets and persons living in flood-prone areas by constructing defense facilities to reduce future losses due to floods, and by strengthening national and provincial institutions and systems for dealing with future floods as a next phase after the Flood Rehabilitation Project to restore the assets lost in the recent floods. The specific objectives will be to enhance provincial capacity to deal with periodic flooding by upgrading their flood preparedness and mitigation systems, as well as strengthening coordination within the Basin.
