AM8. AWM AND FLOODS

Flood management has to deal with considerable challenges given the increased uncertainties due to climate change. Much of the design principles on which flood management has been based cannot be applied if time series are non-stationary. Such insights strengthen the change in flood management from “control of floods” to “living with floods” and an integrated flood and landscape management. The session will discuss challenges for flood management and experiences of adaptive management approaches and new flood management paradigms.
