The major objective of the ExFlood project is to define and analyze measures to combat negative impacts of extreme weather events on infrastructure in small watershed areas in Norway, and to incorporate this in a land use planning tool.

Specific objectives are to (i) classify and review existing approaches dealing with extreme weather events identified by different stakeholders, (ii) identify and develop modeling techniques to quantify discharge from multi-functional catchments (i.e. urban, agriculture, nature, infrastructure elements etc.), (iii) develop and analyze land use strategies and local measures based on interaction with identified stakeholders, and to (iv) produce a planning tool to be used for land use planning in catchments to deal with extreme weather events.
