  • Living with the floods, not against them

    “Yes, we are illiterate sir, but we are engineers as far as our experience with water and rivers is concerned”, says Phushi Mahato, a villager in the Gosi Kandak floodplains in North-Bihar in India. As an outcome of water resource management that failed to understand the role of fluvial regimes in delta, Phushi and his fellow village members have now become vulnerable to floods ...

  • Developing optimum solutions to flooding

    Developing optimum solutions to flooding With a very long period of wet weather in the summer overlaid by intense rainfall, 2007 was the wettest summer in the UK on record. This unusual weather pattern resulted in very high localised runoff, with three events in England exceeding the 1 in 100 year return period over that time – some of the worst flooding that has ever occurred in ...

  • Why disaster warning and development go hand in hand

    To engage people in early action we must understand their experience, behaviour and constraints, says disaster policy expert Andrew Collins. Disaster predictions have significant uncertainty that tends to undermine efforts to act on early warnings. In Bangladesh, for example, where there ...

  • The Malaysian flood hazard management program

    Flooding is the most severe hazard in Malaysia, a country experiencing a wet equatorial climate with heavy seasonal monsoon rains. In the past, nature took care of itself as vast expanses of forests and wetlands soaked up rainfall excess and delayed the flow of water into rivers. Indigenous peoples are also well adapted to seasonal floods, as their lifestyles and livelihood on floodplains have ...

  • A flood forecasting neural network model with genetic algorithm

    It will be useful to attain a quick and accurate flood forecasting, particularly in a flood-prone region. The accomplishment of this objective can have far reaching significance by extending the lead time for issuing disaster warnings and furnishing ample time for citizens in vulnerable areas to take appropriate action, such as evacuation. In this paper, a novel hybrid model based on recent ...

  • The Benefit of Probabilistic Flood Forecasting on European Scale

    The European Flood Alert System (EFAS) is a research project that aims at improving preparedness for oncoming flood events by: • informing the authorities in the Member States of the possibility of a flood to happen before the local systems capture the event with their own monitoring and forecasting systems; • providing catchment based information that gives downstream authorities an overview of ...


  • An adaptive predictive approach for river level forecasting

    Efficient flood management requires accurate real-time forecasts to allow early warnings, real-time control of hydraulics structures, or other actions. Commercially available computing tools typically use hydraulic models derived from the numerical approximation of Saint-Venant equations. These tools need powerful computers, accurate knowledge of the riverbed topography, and skilled operators ...

  • Good Practice for Delivering Flood-Related Information to the General Public

    A. Context of the work In January 2005, the members of the Exchange Circle on Flood Forecasting (EXCIFF) identified the main subjects of interest for the exchange of experiences and information on flood forecasting. It was identified that one of the most important issues in flood warning is the way the general public (GP) is informed about flood events. No matter how good and ...
