Different types of floods are frequently causing important economic and personal damages in a variety of locations within Navarre, a region located in northern Spain. Navarre is found very close to the Cantabrian sea, but only about ten percent of its area belongs to that basin, whereas ninety percent of the region belongs to the - Ebro river watershed – Mediterranean basin. Ranging from very humid oceanic climate areas to semi-deserted locations in the south of the region, floods can be caused by persistent winter fronts coming from the Atlantic ocean to very intense convective summer storm events originated in the Iberic mountain range, located to the south of Navarre. The NAdapta Life project includes actions that focus on the mitigation of flood damages. Specifically, the drafting of local emergency plans for small and medium size towns in Navarre is described here. In order to facilitate the flood emergency episodes management, computer tools have been developed for each village selected for the project. Specific websites and smartphone applications have been implemented for each local entity. Awareness, diffusion and training sessions have been carried out along with the implementation of ‘drafting and tools’ plans.
