With 17, 1 million people and 9 million jobs exposed to river flood, 1, 4 million people and over 850 000 jobs exposed to flood from the sea, France is very exposed to flood hazards. To face this issue, French government launches a National Flood Risk Management Strategy associating all flood management parties through the Joint Flood Commission (CMI). After a national public consultation the project of national strategy has been adopted on the 7th October 2014 by the Ministers of Environment, Interior, Agriculture and Housing. This document is the basis of the French Flood Management Policy at national, district, basin and local level.
