Flooding

From the dawn of civilisation, society has been affected by floods. Communities established near rivers and along the coast have been particularly affected. As civilisation has developed, it has adapted to flooding, making buildings resistant to flooding and protecting communities with flood defences. Yet even the most highly developed parts of the world are still at risk from devastating floods today.

Projections relating to climate change indicate that extreme weather and sea level rise are likely to increase the risk of flooding. CIWEM is working to improve ways in which flood waters are managed so that they better link in with the water cycle.

 

CIWEM's work on Flooding 

CIWEM's work on flooding issues is coordinated through the Rivers and Coastal Group and UDG (CIWEM's Urban Drainage Group). CIWEM also produces the Journal of Flood Risk Management.
