Abstrakt/Abstract: Rainwater management (RWM) has become a global trend in the water management of cities and municipalities. The rate of urbanization first revealed the imperfections of the conventional drainage system in economically developed countries. Therefore the last twenty years have sought procedures and rules to introduce a new relationship to rainwater into the lives of these societies. Although these are cultural societies, the implementation of measures leading to RWM is lengthy and not always straightforward. There are basically two reasons why the principles of RWM cannot be applied more effectively to the rules of these societies. Firstly, it is difficult to change the way of thinking because the transition to RWM systems may not benefit the people of the cities and towns concerned immediately or in their lifetime at all. The conventional method of drainage still represents for many, albeit primarily and selfishly, a higher comfort of a tried and tested life, in which they do not have to deal with rainwater (3). The qualitative shift in the transition to RWM is perceived more by residents with a higher social feeling and a full-fledged intellectual background. The second reason is that the changes that need to be implemented are so far-reaching and fundamental that it is difficult enough to implement them into society's rules (in a democratic way) that they are mutually coordinated in the various fields of activity and therefore effective. From abroad, there is a wealth of information and experience with the complexity of the RWM implementation process. The knowledge and experience from these countries already help us to understand what awaits us to a large extent. The presented results are based exclusively on the analysed studies, projects and adaptation activities of individual states of the Danube region.
