 Summary:
 The project “Flood forecasting and warning system for the Sava River Basin” is for sure one of the most important project implemented among countries that share Sava River basin, regarding flood protection and mitigation of the flood effects. The main goal of the project is the creation of the common prognostic platform where all data necessary for flood forecasting are accessible in real time. Measured meteorological and hydrological data together with the prognostic hydrological, hydraulic and weather prediction model outputs provided by Sava River countries enables quality hydrological forecasts and synchronized action in case of emergency situations. For Serbia, the most downstream country, this tool is providing necessary information for fast and adequate decision making and timely issuing of warnings on floods from Sava River.
