Delivering Integrated Flood Risk Management: Governance for by Sebastiaan van Herk

By Sebastiaan van Herk

The frequency and outcomes of maximum flood occasions have elevated quickly all over the world in contemporary a long time and weather switch and monetary development tend to exacerbate this pattern. Flood safeguard measures by myself can't accommodate the long run frequencies and affects of flooding. built-in flood danger administration (IFRM) considers a portfolio of measures to minimize flood possibility that contain flood safeguard, but in addition land use making plans and emergency administration.

The implementation of IFRM regulations and tasks isn't really straight forward and advice is missing. IFRM calls for collaboration among a number of disciplines; by way of a gaggle of stakeholders with numerous pursuits and capacity; to mix targets and investment from various coverage domain names; to contemplate a number attainable suggestions in any respect spatial scale degrees and for varied time horizons. additionally the overarching societal procedure and its incumbent cultures, buildings and practices are but undeserving for IFRM.

This dissertation offers counsel for IFRM: governance preparations for making plans strategies; for exciting studying and collaboration; for version of the actual (natural and man-made) and societal platforms. It offers four attractive case reports from the Netherlands. This paintings brings new insights to the medical domain names of inter alia: flood probability administration; adaptive co-management; and transition administration, really via their mutual enrichment.

And the developed framework for process design and management (from Chapter 2) has been used and evaluates whether or not the collaborative planning process led to an IFRM plan. The framework has been shown to be effective in the delivery of an IFRM plan; it has been enriched by defining the interfaces between and phasing of planning activities; and can be further improved to better guide implementation and governance activities. Chapter 4 uses the definition of IFRM of Chapter 3 and the framework of Chapter 2 to analyse the Room for the River (RftR) case study.
