Developed at the Prague workshop has just been published by IWRA under 1/2018.

 

Title: How Private Land Matters in Flood Risk Management? (available here)

Key policy messages to be shared around:

• Flood water can be stored in the catchment, upstream of cities, or in the cities themselves.

• In all three areas, the affected land is often privately owned.

• Hence flood risk management – including prevention and resilience – should be based upon land management.
