International Conference on Flood
Management (ICFM) is the only recurring international conference wholly focused on
flood related issues. It is designed to bring together practitioners and researchers
alike, including engineers, planners, health specialists, disasters managers, decision
makers, and policy makers engaged in various aspects of flood
management. It provides a unique opportunity for these various specialists to
come together to exchange ideas and experiences.
5th International Conference on Flood Management (ICFM5) theme is "Floods: From Risk to Opportunity", reflective of the
continued trend towards a broader understanding of how we collectively make use
of the opportunities provided by floods and flooding, cope with risks posed by
them and plan for and respond to flood events.
ICFM5 will be held in Tsukuba, Japan on
27-29 September 2011, and will be organised
by the International Centre for Water Hazard and Risk Management
(ICHARM) under the auspices of UNESCO and the
Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) of
