A couple of years ago, GWP, in partnership with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and Deltares, developed a guidance document on "Selecting Measures and Designing Strategies for Integrated Flood Management".
Pischke says that this publication is more current than ever: “Reaching agreement on problem assessment and policy objectives is the key to successful planning. This is why stakeholder engagement and communication through joint fact-finding and decision-making are at the core of the framework.”
The document provides practical guidance and a starting point for developing an integrated flood risk management strategy and to select measures based on a cascade to reduce risk from the source to the impacted communities.
