Committee of experts


CEPRI is a French national association of local authorities created in December 2006 to promote a new approach to flood risk prevention. Its functioning is ensured by a multidisciplinary team and thanks to the contributions of a committee of experts with multiple profiles (lawyer, geographer, economist, architect, urban planner, forecaster, hydraulician, psycho-sociologist ...).
