Abstract: In an interdisciplinary study at the Lower Odra River the interaction of wetlands restoration, flood protection and landscape development was identified. For this a sophisticated yet practical two-dimensional hydrodynamic model for the surface flow was combined with GIS based analyses of the landscape development. The results gained in the study area confirmed that the restoration of the floodplains will not increase the flood risk. Floodplain restoration, flood protection and sustainable landscape planning do not exclude themselves from each other.
