The emergency response plan (ERP) is applied in the event of significant flooding in the Grand Duchy likely to cause major disruption and constituting a threat to the vital interests or essential needs of all or part of the country or population, which requires that urgent decisions be made and that the actions of the Government and agencies, departments and bodies connected with the public authorities be coordinated at the national level, and at the international level if necessary.


Given the multitude of varied impacts and repercussions, this plan provides those tasked with executing it with the tools they need to be able to react in an appropriate and flexible manner to the events and to provide the best possible protection for the population or sectors affected, their vital interests and the nation's economy.


The execution of the plan falls within the remit of the Prime Minister and the Ministers with responsibility for water and internal affairs.


The management of flash flooding is covered by the ERP in the event of extreme weather conditions.
