Flood protection measures based on the EU Floods Directive will need to be upgraded in future; the appropriate funding, which has been limited, is also needed.

According to SRDNAR, the Serbia Rapid Disaster Needs Assessment Report, flood forecasting capabilities need to be upgraded and there need to be investments in disaster risk reduction. These needs offer an opportunity for more regional cooperation among countries affected by floods; working together they can achieve economies of scale. Otherwise, the level of flood protection may remain lower than what it used to be before the 2014 floods.
