Kerala is the South-western state in the Malabar coast of India that experiences floods. The disaster management in this state is response-centric and the 2018 floods indicated the need for a transition from a response-centric approach to a resilient flood risk management (FRM) approach. According to Vincent Ostrom, multi-level governance (MLG)...

Rapid urbanization has altered the natural hydrological cycle of the Tub Ma catchment, inducing major floods after heavy rainfall events. For that reason, structural mitigation measures were built, including floodwalls along the channel and a pumping station at the outlet. However, no operational rules were available for operating the river...

Like other cities in Kathmandu Valley, Bhaktapur faces rapid urbanisation and population growth. Unsafe, new settlements are partly located at the floodplains and the government lags behind in implementing proper land-use policy to control unrestrained settlement. The rivers are not only constrained by uncontrolled settlements, but also by...

In this research OpenFOAM is used to model and determine the complex hydrodynamic behaviour of a Homogeneous low-crested structure (HLCS) consisting of cubipod artificial concrete elements. The validated model is used to gain insight in the design sensitivities of a two dimensional cross sectional layout to reduce sea wall overtopping. HLCS and...

The phenomena of climate change interacts with the complexity of urban system, which reflect sptially on the process of urbanization. One of the effects of climate change is an increased flooding hazards, and when floods occur this has a severe impact on human lives and comes with vast economic losses. The city of The Hague aims to achieve the...

To develop warning systems for flood events, create precipitation-runoff relationships, validate runoff models, or to understand the behaviour of rivers, understanding of the amount of water flowing through rivers is needed. The low-cost and novel gauging method using Large-Scale Particle Image Velocimetry (LSPIV) could complement discharge...

A high-resolution hydrological solver that solves on time-adaptive grids is created. The solver uses h-refinement strategies which adapts the resolution of the grid using a posteriori measure. It is based on an open-source scientific computing library named PETSc. With the use of highly scalable time-stepping solvers provided by PETSc, an...

The scope of this graduation thesis is to examine up to what extent nomadism as a way of life and human existence can inform spatial planning and landscape design concerning risk mitigation and adaptation to the uncertainty of the future, and eventually, reconceptualise the resilience framework within the spatial context of the Wadden Sea Region...

The phase “water, water everywhere but too much or too little” aptly explains the current situation of many global cities. Within the numerous challenges due to Climate change and Urbanisation, water ranks the highest as a risk to the society. This risk ranges from water related catastrophes like floods to availability of portable water to the...

The Meuse river facilitates important socio-economic functions. In the light of Integrated River Management (IRM), the question rises whether these functions can be facilitated in future decades (until 2050) as well. The riverbed is expected to degrade over the coming decades, just like in the past century. On top of that, the discharge regime...

Mumbai is the commercial capital of the country. The economy and morphology of the city has been shaped by the physical infrastructure but has neglected the ecological and social aspects in planning. This has led to the extreme vulnerability of the region to ecological and social negative externalities. The region experiences urban flooding...

Humans have always populated in the vicinity of river systems, where thesupply of water, nourishment and transportation is obtained from the river.However, inundation is a re-occurring problem and impact of floods are ex-pected to increase due to climate change. Accurate flood forecasting andearly warning is critical for disaster risk management...

Uncertainty posed by Climate Change brings control approaches to environmental processes and dynamics into question. In the Netherlands and particularly in the Dutch River area (Rivierenland in Dutch) narratives have already shifted towards an adaptive planning (Davoudi, 2013). However, there is still a need to go beyond the physical cultural...

This report considers a possible port expansion in port of Scheveningen, The Netherlands. The problems considered are brought forwards in the plans introduced by Dr. Ir. Waterman and are tackled from multiple disciplines. These problems relate to the recharge of the freshwater-lens, reachability of the port, flood protection of the Tweede Haven,...

The number of fatalities due to a potential flood event is traditionally determined utilizing 'mortality functions’. Data of recent large-scale flooding in the Netherlands are not available since the Netherlands was successful in flood prevention. Therefore, only data from the last coastal flood event in 1953 with 1795 direct fatalities are...

As a low-lying city, Shanghai faces threats from typhoon and spring tide under the condition of climate change and land subsidence. With high water level at the toe, the sea embankment is likely to be overtopped and breached, finally resulting in inundation inland.  The objective of this research is to study climate change...

Flood defense systems are critical in protecting against catastrophic events which often lead to significant damage, fatalities or substantial socio-economic and environmental impact. Even though levees form a significant part of the existing flood defense systems, there is a limited knowledge of the different levee behavior processes and the...

This research assesses the impact of plastic waste accumulation on flood events with citizen observations in Kumasi, Ghana. In Kumasi, the fastest growing city in Ghana, flooding events have become more intense due to rapid urbanisation and land use intensification. Additionally, rapid population growth, urbanisation and lack of organised waste...

Small Island Developing States, including many low-lying atoll islands, are among the most vulnerable countries to natural hazards and climate change disproportionately amplifies this vulnerability. Hence, there is a strong need for disaster risk reduction and risk management. Further development and implementation of methodologies for flood...

This study aims to explore the possibility of employing remote sensing images to build a probabilistic flood extent forecasting model. This model is constructed and tested in two study areas: New Orleans and Miami. Images that recorded flooding events are first performed with segmentation method Seed Region Growing, and segmented images are...
