The largest LIFE+ project in Austria

This project will be the largest of its kind in Austria to date. The impact of the measures extends far beyond the boundaries of the actual projects themselves. Neighbouring countries on the Danube will also indirectly benefit from these networking activities. The individual projects are still being discussed regionally and submitted to the responsible authorities for approval. Alongside the interests of local residents and landowners, the hitherto existing flood protection will also be maintained in the process.
