INTEGRATED FLOOD RISK ANALYSIS AND MANAGEMENT METHODOLOGIES

Objective

The management of flood risk is a critical component of public safety and quality of life. The FLOODsiteIntegrated Project will produce improved understanding of specific flood processes and mechanisms and methodologies for flood risk analysis and management ranging from the high level management of risk at arider-basin, estuary and coastal process cell scale down to the detailed assessment in specific areas. It includes specific actions on the hazard of coastal extremes, coastal morph dynamics and flash flood forecasting, as wells understanding of social vulnerability and flood impacts, which are critical to improving the mitigation of flood risk from all causes. The project seeks to identify technologies and strategies for sustainable flood mitigation and defence, recognising the complex interaction between natural biophysical systems and socio-economic systems, to support spatial and policy planning in the context of global change and societal advance. Several pilot studies are included in FLOOD site. These will identify lessons from recent floods (e.g. Elbe, 2002), and test the proposed operational use of methods on integrated risk management and sustainable flood defence (the Thames and Schultz Estuaries and the Ebor coastal delta) or new technology for flash flood forecasting (in France and Italy). FLOOD site will also develop common language, guidance and tools for dissemination of the project results and professional training packages. FLOOD site will build upon the previous and current European and national research and practice in river and coastal flood processes and flood risk mitigation methods to promote consistency of approach. Several of the FLOOD site project partners are identified as contributors to proposals for the virtual centre on floods and droughts identified in Para 1.1.6.3.II of the work programme; this virtual centre will complement the activities of the FLOOD site project.
