This chapter describes in detail the project titled “Enhancement of Flood Management and Flood-protection Planning of Hornad river Basin on Territory of Slovak Republic” which was implemented by the Kosice Self-Governing Region together with other relevant partners in Eastern Slovakia. The project was the first of the necessary steps that had to be taken to build comprehensive flood-protection planning systems and flood management systems in Eastern Slovakia. Project outputs, in particular flood hazard maps and flood risk maps as well as the flood-protection action plans, enable better preparation for the floods and lead to a significant decrease of life losses and economic damages caused by the floods. It could also be used as a good practice, applicable for the whole country.
