6th International Conference on Flood and Urban Water Management
FRIAR 2018 is the sixth Conference of this successful series. The conference started at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London 2008 and was reconvened at the Lombardy Region Headquarters in Milano in 2010, Dubrovnik in 2012, Poznan in 2014 and Venice in 2016. Since 2012 a parallel seminar on the Design, Construction, Maintenance, Monitoring and Control of Urban Water has taken place which is now an integral part of the conference. Flooding is a global phenomenon that claims numerous lives worldwide each year. When flooding occurs in urban areas, it can cause substantial damage to property as well as threatening human life. In addition, many more people must endure the homelessness, upset and disruption that are left in the wake of floods. The increased frequency of flooding in the last few years, coupled with climate change predictions and urban development, suggest that these impacts are set to worsen in the future.
