Technological development must be used to support and facilitate the society safety and evolution. Hazard maps, created based on innovative computer software, have the purpose to prevent and reduce material damages, injuries and deaths. The present paper approaches the design and realization of hazard maps with the purpose of reducing the cross-border gaps between Romania and Republic of Moldova on flood vulnerability. The results conclude on prevention measures in case of emergency situations and regional planning at European Union East border for the increase of society safety.
