Introduction
Background:

This training workshop is being developed by the (through its Associated Programme on Flood Management) and Cap-Net (Capacity Building for Integrated Water Resources Management) as part of a of a collaborative capacity building programme "Integrated Flood Management for Sustainable Development" for flood-prone countries, cities, and communities , with the aim of scaling-up action on integrated flood management to contribute to a minimization of losses of life from flooding and to an efficient use of flood plain resources.

Facilitators:

Gabriel Arduino (WMO)

Joachim Saalmuller (WMO)
Jan T.L. Yap (World Bank)
Purwanti Sri Pudyastuti (Muhammadyah University)
Mezak A. Ratag (Institut Teknologi Bandung)

Course goals:

  • To provide participants with a balanced outlook on floods, flood plains and the development process, and the role they play in the overall framework of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM).
  • To provide the participant with an opportunity to think out of the box about possible ways of addressing the issue of floods within their own context.
  • To provide participants an opportunity to share their conceptions and ideas with water/disaster managers from other countries.
  • To provide a sufficient basis for future self-study on the issue and for an exchange network with other participants.
  • To equip participants with an analytical framework to allow them to analyze the various dimensions of flood management and to identify the multidisciplinary input requirements for IFM.
  • To equip participants with knowledge about available tools and methodologies to improve their flood management practices in their home institution.

 

Duration: 4.5 days / 36 hours

 

Audience: Policy makers,

 

Learning Objectives:

After completing this course participants should: 

  • Understand the rationale for applying an Integrated Approach to Flood Management (IFM).
  • Understand the Social, Environmental, Economic, Legal and Institutional Dimensions of Flood Management, and as such the interdisciplinary nature of the concept and to appreciate the possible contribution of each discipline.
  • Understand the main principles and aims of IFM/IWRM (theoretical level) and critically review them within their own country context.
  • Understand the full range of flood management measures (structural and non-structural measures).
  • Be able to identify the stakeholders in their own country or area for IFM.
  • Be able to identify requirements and possible actions within their own jurisdiction that would strengthen IFM.
  • Be able to identify required tools to facilitate such actions in their own context.
