Abstract

Romania is a country that suffered quite often flooding, especially in the last decade, when they were more frequent. Practically, there were years when almost during all months flooding occurred, either in small basins, with torrential character, or at a zonal or basin scale. These floods provoked very important damages that strongly affected the population and various social and economic relevant objectives. There were even losses of human lives registered. The economic consequences of these floods are hard to be compensated in the present context of economic development of Romania.
