Governance to prevent a Seine flood in Île-de-France

This chapter analyses the deficits in governance that have affected flood risk prevention policies in Île-de-France and explores the opportunities currently available that could overcome them. In the past, the institutional and administrative fragmentation of the region as a result of multiple decentralised tiers might have impeded action. This chapter proposes ways of better harmonising public policies with a view to a bold flood prevention strategy.
