Flooding is a global phenomenon that claims numerous lives worldwide each year. Set up to promote research into this area of study, this book contains the proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Flood Recovery, Innovation and Response. When flooding occurs in populated areas, it can cause substantial damage to property as well as threatening human life. In addition, many more people must endure the homelessness, upset and disruption that are left in the wake of floods. The increased frequency of flooding in the last few years, coupled with climate change predictions and urban development, suggest that these statistics are set to worsen in the future. Apart from the physical damage to buildings, contents and loss of life, which are the most obvious impacts of floods upon households, other more indirect losses are often overlooked. These indirect and intangible impacts are generally associated with disruption to normal life as well as longer term health issues including stress related illness. Flooding represents a major barrier to the alleviation of poverty in many parts of the developing world, where vulnerable communities are often exposed to sudden and life threatening events. This book covers a wide range of technical and management topics related to flooding and its impacts on communities, property and people. These include: Flood Modelling; Risk Assessment; Flood Management; Considering ‘Blue-Green’ Approaches to Flood Risk Management; Property-level Flooding and Health Consequences; State-of-the-art Flooding-damage Survey and Assessment; Emergency Preparedness and Response; Adaptation to Flood Risk.

One-third of the annual natural disasters and economic losses, and more than half of the associated victims are flood related. A burgeoning global population and growing wealth, particularly in the last two or three decades, have increased the risk and the demand for flood protection. These features, together with climate change predictions and urban development, are affecting the way flood risk is managed. Knowledge and scientific tools play a role of paramount importance in the strain of coping with flooding problems, along with capacity building in the context of political and administrative frameworks. Therefore, governments need to establish clear institutional, financial and social mechanisms and processes for flood risk management in order to ensure the safety of people and property and, thereby, contribute to flood defence, prevention and recovery. This volume contains papers presented at the second International Conference on Flood Recovery, Innovation and Response. The conference provides a forum for researchers, academics and practitioners actively involved in improving and interchanging knowledge and expertise in a wide range of technical and management issues related to flooding and its devastating effects. The scientific topics presented at the conference on Flood Recovery Innovation and Response 2010 included: Flood Risk Analysis; Flood Risk Management; Urban Flood Management; Flood Forecasting; Risk Assessment and Decision Making; Flood Case Studies; Community Resilience to Flooding.

Recent catastrophes, from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the ravaging of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, to the 2007 floods in Bangladesh, England, and Texas, have made the world very ware of the need for better management of the response to flooding and of the rehabilitation of damaged areas. This book contains papers originally presented at the First International Conference on Flood Recovery Innovation and Response (FRIAR), held in London, UK, which brought together academics, practitioner, and government officials to share information on the state of the art in this field.The conference papers address one of six main themes: Risk management in relation to flood events and climate change; Pre-event planning (both short- and long-term) and business continuity; Management of major events so that coherent and seamless frameworks of support are created; Post damage restoration and recovery; Victims of flooding - including physiological and psychological public health risks; and International and national government policy. This book contains papers originally presented at the First International Conference on Flood Recovery Innovation and Response (FRIAR), held in London, UK. The papers presented at the conference are grouped into the following six main themes. Within the themes, papers cover such topics as: Flood defence methods; Financial and insurance issues; Coping strategies; Adaptive capacity; and Rural vs urban community approaches. The book will be of interest to practitioners, researchers, planners and all others interested in the topic of flooding.

Flooding is a global phenomenon that claims countless lives worldwide each year. Beginning in 2008 at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London this book contains papers presented at the 5th conference in the successful series on Flood Recovery, Innovation and Response. When flooding occurs in populated areas, it can cause substantial damage to property as well as threatening human life. Apart from the physical damage to buildings, contents and loss of life, which are the most obvious impacts of floods upon households, indirect losses are often overlooked. These indirect and intangible impacts are generally associated with disruption to normal life as well as longer term health issues including stress related illness. In many parts of the developing world, flooding can represent a major barrier to the alleviation of poverty as vulnerable communities are often exposed to sudden and life threatening events. How we respond and adapt to the challenges of flooding is key to developing our long term resilience. This book provides a platform for the work of researchers, academics and practitioners actively involved in improving our understanding of flood events and our approaches to response, recovery and resilience. A wide range of technical and management topics related to flooding and its impact are included: Flood management; Flood warning; Flood risk adaptation Flood protection - products and processes; Flood risk modelling; Flood forecasting; Flood vulnerability; Urban flood modelling; Flood risk assessment and recovery; Climate change impact; Socio and economic impact; Flood case studies; Flood damage assessment; Storm water control.

Rehabilitation of brownfields, particularly those which are contaminated can be an expensive undertaking and requires not only technical solutions but the involvement of financial, regulatory and community stakeholders. Fundamental to this process is the analysis of the risks involved and the development of the appropriate strategies. Those need to be weighted against the economic and social benefits of brownfield development, to assess the general viability of the redevelopment. In most cases the demand for development land drives the process forward, while sometimes the rehabilitation is grounded on the wish to restore the landscape and the ecology of a region. This volume contains the proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Prevention, Assessment, Rehabilitation and Development of Brownfield Sites that was held in Cephalonia (Greece) in May 2008. Brownfield development is in most cases essential to attract new business to the locality and for the creation of healthy communities. Therefore, there is a great need for deeper research and study of all aspects of the problem - technical, institutional, financial, social - and an exchange of ideas, know-how and experience among experts and scientists. The proceedings have been arranged into the following sections: Rehabilitation of Brownfields; Development Issues; Remediation Studies and Technologies; Case Studies; Risk Assessment and Management; Community and Public Involvement.
