Case Studies

A number of case studies on flood management were collected from various regions, based on the experiences of organizations active in flood management. The main objectives in collecting these case studies are to

  • Identify the extent to which integrated flood management has been carried out,
  • Understand shortcoming in current flood management practices worldwide,
  • Extract lessons learned and good practices in flood management,
  • Catalogue the policy changes required to support IFM, and
  • Identify the institutional changes required to achieve IFM.

The Overview Situation Paper on flood management practices extracts the essence of each case study, emphasizes findings and recommendations with relevance to the aspects of Integrated Flood Management and the potential for practices to be replicated in other locations.
