„The Flood Today“ – artists on the subject of flood, extreme weather events and climate change More and more frequently extreme weather events of short duration and high intensity such as heavy rain or storms occur in previously unknown locations and cause increasing damages. Reasons are climate change, increasing surface sealing, increased rainwater drainage, intensive agriculture... It was assumed water was technically manageable. Today, however, countries, local authorities and citizens are called upon to take precautions. Renaturation measures in waters should make a contribution to flood protection. Organic farming protects the soil and helps to save rain.
