Preparation of Plans (national, basin and masters)

SUPERVISION OF WORKS UPON THE PROTECTION PROGRAMS OF VALLEY AND VULNERABLE RURAL POPULATION AGAINST FLOODS. PERU.

Reduce the vulnerability against flooding by overflowing of the rivers Cañete, Pisco, Matagente and Chico on the valleys of Cañete, Pisco, Chincha and rural populations residing in the area.

The objective of the program is to protect 24.655 ha of irrigated agricultural areas and 8.133 affected families from flooding. Reforestation and recovery are planned in a total area of 20,4 ha where 60.384 seedlings are considered.

An important training program against flooding for the local population is planned, with 84 training events scheduled.

INTEGRATED PLANNING OF FLOODS AND MASS MOVEMENTS OF CONTROL OF THE BASIN MALA RIVER – DEPARTMENT OF LIMA. PERU.

Development of an Planning for Flood Control and Mass Movements achieving the desired levels of protection and safety reducing the disasters risk caused by floods and mass movements in the Mala River Basin (Lima Department).

The Mala river basin is in the central part of the Pacific hydrographic region. Politically, it belongs to, 14 districts, 3 provinces of the Department of Lima. The Mala river basin has an area of 2.320 km2. More than 1.600 habitants have been affected by floods.

INTEGRATED PLAN DEVELOPMENT FOR THE FLOOD RISK MANAGEMENT AND MOVEMENTS OF MASSES AND PLUVIAL DRAINAGE MASTER PLAN OF DISTRICTS OF PIURA, CASTILLA AND VEINTISEIS DE OCTUBRE. PERU.

Integrated Plan development for the floods risk management and Mass Movements in order to reach the desired levels of protection and safety, reducing the risk of disasters caused by floods and mass movements. Revision of the current storm drainage system and development of a Storm Drainage Master Plan.

The Piura River basin is in the extreme north of Peru, corresponds to the basin system of the Pacific slope and has a total area of 12,216 km2. More than 9,000 inhabitants have been affected by floods.

UPDATE THE LAND USE PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT OF RIVER HYDROGRAPHIC BASINS: (POMCAS)

The studies carried out the Basin characterization of the physical-biotic environment, climate, slops, geology, geomorphology, hydrology, hydrography, morphometry, hydrology, water quality, coverage and land use, strategic ecosystems, Vegetation and Wildlife. In parallel, a specific study on risks by landslides, floods, torrential events and other geological phenomena (erosion, tsunamis, seismicity, etc.) Is developed, and its threats and vulnerabilities for the territory and population evaluated.

These basins total area of more than 27,000 km2

  • Río Guatapurí y Bajo Cesar – Ciénaga zapatosa
  • Canal del Dique
  • Río Zulia. Norte de Santander
  • Río Bogotá y río Alto Suárez
  • Río Tapias y río Camarones
  • Río Calenturitas y río Algodonal

INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT PROJECT AND MASTER PLAN OF THE PILCOMAYO RIVER BASIN. ARGENTINA-BOLIVIA-PARAGUAY.

The location of the Pilcomayo River basin makes it essential to have a complete diagnosis of the situation and from there, elaborating a Master Plan of the policies and measures that make the management of the water resource in the basin sustainable. The General Objective of the Project is: “Improving the living conditions of the resident of the Pilcomayo river basin area and its environment, relying on a significant reinforcement of the regional integration process.”

In the upper basin water is contaminated and sediment due to either, natural processes and mining activity, and marked erosion processes, as well as losses of forest mass, while in the lower basin there are severe sedimentation with loss of sections of the course, deterioration of wetlands and impact on associated biodiversity.

The Pilcomayo River basin and its area of influence includes 270,000 km2 and a population of more than 1,500,000 inhabitants.

MASTER PLAN FOR FLOOD PROTECTION IN THE AREA OF LA MARINA ALTA (ALICANTE). SPAIN.

Development of a master plan for flood protection in the area of La Marina Alta (province of Alicante), in order to foresee the potential flood risks and relieve its effects. The final aim is to cut down the potential associated damages of floods over the local population and infrastructures.

The work involves the development of a Master Plan, that incorporates the following contents: Systematic development of thematic cartography including hydrological and geomorphological data of the main basins and its subbasins. Basic design criteria and specifications for works near streams and rivers; Definition of the new infrastructure needs of the area; Existing infrastructure modifications for flood risk minimization; Economic evaluation (investments/costs) of the designed measures; Territorial  planning considerations; Definition of the management schemes, timing program and intervention priorities.

Covering an area of 763 km2
