Urban Flood Management

2010 | Action C22

Along with windstorms, floods are the most common and widespread of all natural disasters. Although they can often be predicted, they cause loss of life, damage and destruction, as many urban communities are located near coasts and rivers. In terms of victims, floods are responsible for more than half the deaths caused by natural catastrophes. As flood events appear to be rapidly increasing world-wide, an advanced and universal approach of urban flood and how to manage will help reducing flood impact. This textbook integrates the expertise from disciplines such as hydrology, sociology, architecture, urban design, construction and water resources engineering. The subject is approached from an international perspective and various case studies, exercises, expert advises and literature recommendations are included to support the theory and illustrations.
