Capacity Building for Integrated Flood Management

 

The Flood Management Policy Series papers are primarily aimed at flood managers, their purpose being to capture the full range of issues involved in flood management and serve as an enabler between different disciplines to work together on floods. The introduction of these papers in form of Power Point Presentations is considered as an entrance point to induce a multi-disciplinary outlook on flood management. The slide presentation materials for Legal and Institutional Aspects of Integrated Flood Management (IFM), Social Aspects and Stakeholder Involvement in IFM, Environmental Aspects of IFM, and Economic Aspects of IFM had been developed and
A wide range of materials for different target groups is available below as a self-study resource for flood managers, policy makers and students as well as for teachers and trainers as resource materials for vocational training, advocacy workshops and public awareness building measures.

 Materials for Teachers and Kids

Looking for material that helps to adress the issue of floods in classroom or with a public audience without specific sector expertise? WMO and "Project WET: Water Education for Teachers" have jointly developed an Educator's Guide with classroom-ready activities (Discover Floods Educators Guide), and a booklet for Kids (Discover Floods - Kids in Discover Series).

 

This valuable 60-page resource helps educators teach students about both the risks and benefits of flooding through a series of engaging, hands-on activities. Acknowledging the different roles that floods play in both natural and urban communities, the book helps young people gain a global understanding of this common--and sometimes dangerous--natural phenomena that affects hundred of millions of people around the world each year. Complementing its text are photographs that shed light on the aftermath of floods, as well as numerous illustrations to facilitate learning. Students will apply a number of problem-solving techniques to such relevant issues as how to protect yourself and your family should you live in a flood-prone area.

When water is on the rise, students' imaginations are bound to be swept away. Saturated with important-to-know facts and engaging hands-on activities, it's a force of nature that's ideal for making a splash in the classroom.
