3rd European Conference on Flood Risk Management, 17th - 21st October 2016, Lyon, France

July 01, 2015

Floods cause distress and damage wherever they happen and flooding from rivers, estuaries and the sea threatens many millions of people in Europe. Insurance losses from flooding have increased significantly since 1990 and flood management in Europe is changing with a move from flood protection and defence to comprehensive flood risk management.

FLOODrisk 2016 will explore research advances in flood risk analysis and innovations in flood risk management practice. The conference will consider all aspects of flood risk and will cover the causes of floods, their impacts on people, property and the environment, and portfolios of risk management measures. FLOODrisk 2016 is also supported by the Flood Risk Management Research Consortium.

Focus 
FLOODrisk 2016 will bring together researchers, policy makers and practitioners from across the world to share experience and progress made in flood risk research, policy and management practice. 
There will be sessions on progress made, lessons learned and best practice. participants will share how recent floods in Europe, the USA, Australia and Asia influence discussions in the political, management and scientific arena and how these experiences might lead to new or common approaches towards flood risk management, particularly in Urban areas. 

FLOODrisk 2016 will include contributions from a variety of national, European and international flood related initiatives as well as wider international practice. Programme An extended list of topics in the areas of Flood Risk Assessment and Flood Event Management will be addressed in thematic or special sessions and interactive workshops during this three-day conference.

  1. Characterising the flood hazard (Probability from all sources, Climate change, Multi-hazard, Data analysis and modelling)
  2. Characterising the consequences (Physical, environmental, financial and economic damage, Lossof-life estimation and modelling, Critical infrastructure and cascading impacts)
  3. Characterising the flood risk (Vulnerability and societal resilience, Risk perception and communication, Uncertainty assessment, Risk evaluation and assessment, Hazard and risk mapping)
  4. Risk management and reduction (Long-term protection and prevention measures, Non-structural measures and instruments, Management and maintenance of infrastructure, Public education and engagement, Lessons from past events)
