RAINGAIN is a European project aimed at improving the prediction of pluvial floods in our cities. The frequency and the damages of pluvial floods in urban areas are expected to increase as a consequence of climate change and urban development. New solutions are needed to cope with intense storms and to reduce the risks for populations and infrastructures. RainGain develops and tests innovative tools and practices based on the use of high resolution radars in four pilot cities: Leuven, London, Paris, Rotterdam. RainGain unites 13 partners and it is funded by the Interreg NWE IVB Programme.
