Country: Belgium
Coordinate 50° 46' 15", 3° 52' 31"
Pilot manager authority: Ghent University
Objective: The main goal of FRAMES Belgium is to have a strong participative process with three main target groups: 1) Flood-prone citizens; 2) Wider community, and 3) Local authorities.
Flood risk:
  • Rainfall floods in Moerbeke-Viane
  • River floods in the centre of Geraardsbergen

For both, the the risk probability is considered medium.

The Dender has naturally a quick hydrological response because the combination of a strong topography and the loam soils in the uphill zones (VMM, 2016). In case of intense rainfall, the river response is relatively quickly, increasing its level. Furthermore, the Dender Basin has been subject to land sealing through urbanization enhancing this process.
