This book is a contribution from ICHARM to the International Flood Initiate
About the book:
In order to understand best flood management policy practices and lessons
learned, ICHARM has launched a project to collect the experiences of past large-scale floods. In total, 11
original reports have been collected from around the world to cover different socio-economic and climate
This book is not a catalogue of large–floods describing causes, processes
and consequences in detail but rather analyses of lessons and policy implications that the authors abstracted
from the events.
The target groups and audiences of this book are policy makers and flood
risk managers, particularly those who are involved in decision making to deal with large-scale floods with
national and regional impacts.
It is difficult to cover all aspects of comprehensive flood management
policy in a single volume. However, the editors hope the book will be a useful reference to different
experiences of flood management in various parts of the world and beneficial to practitioners, decision makers
and researchers for their sincere efforts in flood management.
