The European Commission's "Towards a Stronger European Union Disaster Response" adopted and endorsed by the Council in 2010, underpins the importance of strengthening concerted actions for natural disasters including floods, which are amongst the costliest natural disasters in the EU.  The European Flood Awareness System (EFAS), developed to produce European overviews on ongoing and forecasted floods, contributes to better protection of the European Citizen, the environment, property and cultural heritage in support to the EU Mechanism for Civil Protection.
EFAS was developed at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in close collaboration with the National hydrological and meteorological services, European Civil Protection through the Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC) and research institutes.
Since 2012 EFAS is an operational service under the umbrella of the Copernicus emergency management service and run by Member States organisations. EFAS also represents the 1st operational hydrological network in Europe.
