Comprehensive Flood Risk Management: Research for Policy and Practice

Frans Klijn (Editor), Timo Schweckendiek (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook editingScientificpeer-review


Flood risk management policy across the European Union is changing, partly in response to the EU Floods Directive and partly because of new scientific approaches and research findings. It involves a move towards comprehensive flood risk management, which requires bringing the following fields/domains closer together: the natural sciences, social sciences and arts; science, policy and practice; and engineering, spatial planning and governance. Naturally, this involves preventive fl ood risk management and flood event management, as well as learning from the past and considering future global change.
