 Synopsis

Managed Flooding and Flood ManagementIn terms of environmental hazards, flooding is one of the most serious that we face globally.

Every year millions of people are displaced and hundreds of thousands are killed, injured or catch diseases related to flooding or flooding incidents. In the UK, there are few fatalities but property damage runs at up to a billion pounds a year.

Is extreme flooding the direct result of climate change? Or does the way we manage our rivers and other water resources also contribute to the problem?

Scientists at the UK's University of Nottingham are among the international experts contributing to major research on flooding and river management aimed at providing future solutions for all communities at risk from one of the most destructive forces in nature.
