Flooding is a natural process; they become a risk to society as human develop activities in the riparian areas without paying attention to the measures required by each situation. In rural areas, floods have significant impacts on agriculture and can cause visible damages for property and settlements, as a consequence of land cover change. The development plans of rural areas must take into account the Directive 2007/60/EC on the assessment and management of flood risk, because its implementation is a necessary measure for a sustainable development. Flood risk management re presents the application of policies, procedures and practices, having as objectives risk identification, their analysis and assessment, treatment, monitoring and reassessment of risks in order to reduce them, undertaking of preventive measures in order to limit the effects of floods. The core objective of the research is to enhance the role of the land use planning in the flood risk management plans. Planning purposes to guide the new development of the area to reduce the vulnerability and the flood risk; if not, the development could be compromised. The article includes several proposals for the issues which must be taken into account for a flood risk strategy.
