10 Flooding Management

¿Qué estrategias de gestión de inundaciones hay? ¿Cuáles son las estrategias de ingeniería dura? ¿Cuáles son las estrategias de ingeniería blandos? ¿Cómo funcionan? ¿Qué son los intervalos de recurrencia de inundaciones? ¿Cómo se calculan?

2017 Global platform for disaster risk reduction: Proceedings

This document summaries the proceedings of the The Fifth Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction, which took place from 24 to 26 May 2017 in Cancún, Mexico. Sections include proceedings from the: Chair's summary, formal events, side events and other events as well as listing...

2018 State of U.S. High Tide Flooding with a 2019 Outlook

Tide gauges of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are measuring rapid increases in coastal flood risk along U.S. coastlines due to relative sea level (RSL) rise. The most noticeable impact of RSL rise is the increasing frequency of high tide flooding (HTF) that in...

2018 UN World Water Development Report, Nature-based Solutions for Water

The 2018 edition of the World Water Development Report (WWDR 2018) seeks to inform policy and decision-makers, inside and outside the water community, about the potential of nature-based solutions (NBS) to address contemporary water management challenges across all sectors, and particularly...

2019 Monsoon Through Rainfall and Flood Review

In late January 2019, tropical Queensland received an extended period of heavy rainfall as a result of an intense slow-moving monsoon and tropical lows. This event continued to affect Queensland until 9 February 2019. In response to the event, the Minister for Fire and Emergency Services, the...

A framework to assess integration in flood risk management: implications for governance, policy,...

Over decades the concept of integration has been promoted to enhance alignment between policy domains, and to manage trade-offs and maximize synergies across management practices. Integrated approaches have the potential to enable better outcomes for flood risk management (FRM) and society as a...

A guide for public-sector resilience bond sponsorship

This paper offers a path forward for governments at all levels—cities, states, federal agencies, and international aid programs—to align public-sector disaster risk reduction measures with private insurance using Resilience Bonds. This new bond mechanism was developed to (1) expand financial...

A Guide to Selecting Ecosystem Service Models for Decision-Making: Lessons from Sub-Saharan Africa

Over 80 modeling tools for mapping ecosystem services have been developed to help decision-makers better understand their local systems. These often consist of a set of models, each representing a particular ecosystem service. However, the usefulness of these modeling tools to support...

A rapid flood risk assessment method for response operations and nonsubject‐matter‐expert...

Flood risk planning and emergency response at community levels rely on fast access to accurate inundation models that identify geographic areas, assets, and populations that may be flooded. However, limited flood modelling resources are available to support these events and activities. We present...

A Review of Citizen Science and Crowdsourcing in Applications of Pluvial Flooding

Pluvial flooding can have devastating effects, both in terms of loss of life and damage. Predicting pluvial floods is difficult and many cities do not have a hydrodynamic model or an early warning system in place. Citizen science and crowdsourcing have the potential for contributing to early...

A toolkit for procuring resilience

The Procuring Resilience Opportunities (PRO) Toolkit focuses on ways cities and utilities can immediately work within their current procurement systems to enable better resilience outcomes. Local procurement processes have the potential to either enable this transition or stymie it completely....

A typology of community flood resilience

Flood risk is increasing worldwide and there is a growing need to better understand the co-benefits of investments in disaster resilience. Utilizing a multinational community flood resilience dataset, this paper takes a systems approach to understanding community-level flood resilience. Using a...

Accelerating Sendai Framework implementation in Asia: Disaster risk reduction in contexts of...

This report explores the links between disasters and conflict in Asia, with a view to supporting accelerated implementation of the Asia Regional Plan, Target E and the Sendai Framework. Just under half of all global disasters occurred in the Asia-Pacific region between 2000 and 2017. The area...

Actions for Children and Youth Resilience:Guide for Governments

This guide is expected to provide directions for Governments for the development and implementation of public policies for the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) under a multi-sectorial approach (specifically in the areas of protection of children and youth , Education, Water, Sanitation and...

Adapt now: A global call for leadership on climate resilience

The Global Commission on Adaptation seeks to accelerate adaptation by elevating the political visibility of adaptation and focusing on concrete solutions. This report focuses on making the case for climate adaptation, providing specific insights and recommendations in key sectors: food security,...

Adaptation to flood risk: Results of international paired flood event studies

This study aims to improve the understanding of the primary drivers of changes in flood risk, in order to support effective adaptation. The study analyzed eight paired floods, that is, consecutive flood events that occurred in the same region, with the second flood causing significantly lower...

Adaptation to Sea-Level Rise: Local Government Liability Issues

This paper addresses the legal frameworks and rules about what local and regional councils in New Zealand can and cannot do to adapt to the coastal hazards associated with sea-level rise and climate change. The focus is on what councils might be liable for in respect of housing affected by...

Adaptive management for resilient communities

Short-term projects and linear management approaches are often unsuitable for achieving resilient development in the face of volatile complexity. Adaptive management combined with longer-term project funding has the potential to deliver more appropriate development outcomes. This will require...

Adoption of Flood Preparedness Actions: A Household Level Study in Rural Communities in Tabasco,...

Of all the natural disasters, floods are the most common. While they affect most countries around the world, poor communities are particularly vulnerable to flood risk. The use of precautionary and preparative measures are key for minimizing related flood impacts; however, little is known about...

After the storm: how the UK’s flood defences performed during the surge following Xaver

Thousands evacuated and one in six properties at risk – the flooding which hit the UK in December 2013 was the worst since 1953. This review by Zurich experts looks at measures taken and structures put in place over the years. It also shows why it is important to maintain flood protection...
