Need for better dissemination of scientific/technical information related to flash flood event to the authorities.
The analysis of this gap revealed, the need to identify ways to better disseminate the outcomes weather forecasting and flood modelling to the authorities emerged.

Moreover, stakeholders (practitioners, organisations from public and private sectors and local authorities) develop and implement prevention plans individually (if they deal with prevention measures). From this perspective, this TCP4 Capability Gap Finding (CGF) relates with the TCP4 2nd CGF (4.CGF.2: Lack of a Standardized and Interdisciplinary Methodology for Developing Wildland Urban Interface Prevention Plans).
