Funding increased resilience against flooding of the Seine in Île-de-France

Funding the prevention measures required to increase resilience levels is a major challenge. This chapter focuses on risk prevention funding mechanisms and sources in France and their application to the specific risk of flooding of the Seine in Île-de-France. While this risk has been identified as a national priority, there is clearly scope for progress in funding prevention policies adapted to the challenges. The analysis and recommendations proposed seek to favour approaches to funding which ensure effectiveness and justice.
