Project Description

Early warning service for urban pluvial floods for and by citizens and city authorities

FloodCitiSense aims at developing an urban pluvial flood early warning service for,
but also by citizens and city authorities. This service will reduce the vulnerability of
urban areas and citizens to pluvial floods, which cause serious damage to the urban
environment. Citizens will be actively involved in the monitoring of rainfall and
flooding, making use of low-cost sensors and web-based technologies. The early
warning service will enable ‘citizens and cities’ to be better prepared and to better
respond to urban pluvial floods. FloodCitiSense targets a co-creation of this innovative
public service in an urban living lab context with all actors.
