Interim results of the POCO-Flood project have been published in the scientific open access journal LAND: Land 2022, 11, 392. https://doi.org/10.3390/land11030392
They deal with the topic of land use and conflicts of use in flood risk zones in alpine areas of Austria. The work of the Federal Institute of Agricultural Economics and Mountain Farming points to the relatively high proportion of arable land with great economic importance for agricultural enterprises especially in alpine flood risk zones, which also have a relatively higher value in regional food production than outside these zones. Therefore, a consideration of agricultural areas in flood risk management that is as differentiated as possible according to their utilisation potential is necessary.
