About this book

Strategic Management of Flood Risk offers a holistic approach for flood risk management to communities. This supports the practical consideration of the full range of flood behaviour in decisions that influence this risk. These decisions may relate to:
- management activities aimed at reducing risk to the existing community
- land use planning activities to limit the growth in risk related to new development
- emergency management activities aimed at preparing for, responding to, and recovering from floods.

This book provides a logical framework and understanding of how flood risk to communities can be considered and managed. It discusses approaches that allow consideration of the variation of risk between and within floodplains, and across flood events of different scales. It investigates how land use planning activities that support community growth can be informed by an understanding of the variation in flood behaviour, flood function, and isolation of an area from safety, and the associated risks to the community and the built environment. With full colour figures and diagrams in a colour plate section, international case studies in land use planning, emergency management and flood mitigation included, Strategic Management of Flood Risk provides value for engineers, town planners and professionals involved in emergency management, as well as for postgraduate students studying flood risk solutions.
