Water Information Systems facilitating transboundary management in the Rhine river basin

The International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine (ICPR) develops, manages and uses different types of Water Information Systems (WIS) that are essential tools for the crossborder exchange and compilation of data within the Rhine river basin.

The ICPR members collect and produce complex data related to water quality and quantity issues. The various stages of the work between the countries within the Rhine basin are supported and accompanied by computer-, model- and GIS-based information systems as presented:

  • Rhine Warning and Alarm Plan
  • Transboundary Information systems related to flood risk management
  • Flood forecasting and flood announcement Instrument for assessing the impact of flood risk management measures on risk evolution.
