The aim of this survey is to give a concise overview of the pre- and post-barrier functioning of the Eastern Scheldt estuary. The survey builds upon the Eastern Scheldt Memo (dated March 2016), which explored possible sources and shortlisted leading publications, key institutes and contacts. In response to the memo’s reception by the...

Adaptation planning for flood risk forms a significant part of global climate change response. Engineering responses to higher water levels can be prohibitively costly. Several recent studies emphasize the potential role of ecosystems in flood protection as adaptive risk reduction measures while also contributing to carbon fixation. Here, we...

The aim of this report is to document the output of the three workshops and the questionnaire. The results of the Flood risk analysis has been reported in another Floodsite report: De Bruijn et al., 2008. For a complete description of the Schelde pilot study reference is made to Chapter 8 of the FLOODsite book on pilot sites (Schanze, in prep.).

The structure of the report is articulated into three major Parts. The first Part is focused on the structure of the flash flood observational system, which includes the Hydrometeorological observatories and the methodology for post event survey. A subsection is devoted to the analysis of the resolution requirements for flash flood modelling....

This report is Deliverable 18-2 which describes the conceptual, methodological and technological frameworks and how these are implemented for three pilot sites - the Thames, Schelde and Elbe - through prototype decision or ‘discussion’ support tools. The report describes the generic interactions between all relevant factors that drive and...

The Face-to-Face Knowledge Transfer Task focuses on under and post-graduate training and education of (future) experts, and on production of materials (course-ware) for knowledge transfer and dissemination of the information to the general public and professional involved into the flood risk assessment and mitigation process. In this task the...

FLOODsite, from the start, had the ambition to provide conceptual and methodological guidance on how to analyze and assess flood risks as well as on how to manage flood risk and flood events. The main goal of this volume is to share FLOODsite’s view on what a comprehensive approach to flood risk assessment and management is, and what it ought to...

The purpose of this report is to identify messages from the FLOODsite pilot studies that might be helpful to Policy makers who are responsible for the implementation of the EC Floods Directive. The main requirement identified in this review is the need to develop guidance for methods to implement the Floods Directive based on the results of the...

The paper draws lessons from our empirical investigations in Germany, Italy and England/Wales in a very specific perspective: It formulates recommendations for flood risk management with people at risk. Thus it tries to shed light on the views of this important – but often neglected – group of stakeholders. Our addressees are flood risk...

Flood risk management requires policy making for a relatively far and largely unknown future. Task 14 of Theme 2 in FLOODsite aims to provide methodological guidance on how to perform the design/development of long term strategic alternatives for flood risk management and how to assess their performance in different future scenarios. To begin...

Effective risk reduction requires the optimal understanding of the causes of risk, options of risks reduction and ways of their implementation. Especially with regard to risk reduction options much has changed in recent decades. Many measures and instruments, which are the actual tools of risk reduction, have developed to reduce risk in various...

Flood warning benefits have hitherto been modelled by predicting the damages saved by moving the contents of properties on receipt of a flood warning. The research described in this report has developed a new flood warning benefit estimation model capable of capturing a much wider range of potential economic benefits. This model is based upon a...

Design, implementation and operation of measures and instruments for effective and sustainable flood risk reduction require knowledge from previous practice. Systematic ex-post evaluation of interventions into the flood risk system and is an important basis for learning in support of future development of strategies and strategic options in...

The report discusses the findings of a questionnaire survey carried out in five localities of the Mulde catchment (Germany) in 2005 (N=404). All these settlements were heavily affected by the 2002 August flood. Both an event- and a phase-sensitive approach are applied from a bottom-up perspective of the people affected. This specific...

The report “Strategies for Pre-Flood Risk Management – Case Studies and Recommendations” proposes (1) a theoretical framework to analyse the content, process, and context of strategies for reducing flood risk within catchments. (2) Three case studies illustrate why researchers and practitioners alike can benefit from using the framework to...

The first activity in task 29 was the scoping of the text-based knowledge transfer, which implied a review of target audiences and the drafting of a provisional table of contents with authors and/or links to task-final reports, size of chapters/ sections, etc. This report is the result of this activity, in tune with task 28. FLOODsite is...

The report begins by reviewing literature on vulnerability and resilience to disasters. ‘Vulnerability’ has emerged as a central concept for understanding what it is about the condition of people that enables a hazard to become a disaster. True flood prevention and mitigation need to address not only hydrological factors, but also the economic,...
