Marta Szylar , Katarzyna Cegielska , Dawid Kudas , Barbara Czesak


The aim of this paper is an analysis if the provisions of development plans in the context of flood protection. Both crisis plans created for crisis management and local plans were analysed in QGIS software. Coverage and content of local development plan and land cover were analysed in details in flood risk areas. The results are presented in cartographic and tabular form. The study has shown the necessity for appropriate plans and programs supporting flood protection in Krakow. This is particularly important in urban areas with high population density and developmental pressure as in those areas the effects of floods would be particularly severe.
