"Deconstructing the legal framework for flood protection in Austria: individual and state responsibilities from a planning perspective";
This article aims to analyze the legal framework for flood risk management in Austria, focusing on planning. Austria´s legal basis for flood risk management is fairly complex because its federal organization involves various administrative bodies and a fragmented legal framework. Regulations are numerous, as are competencies, which poses challenges. Implementation mechan- isms vary between provinces; nevertheless, provincial regulations impose basic regulations regarding the building process. Regulations concerning private protection and mitigation mea- sures for existing buildings are, however, limited.
