Integrated Flood Management Tools Series – 15 : Flood Proofing
Integrated Flood Management Tools Series No. 15
Global Water Partnership (GWP) ; World Meteorological Organization (WMO)
This tool aims to provide various options of flood proofing measures, not exclusively limited to structural measures or building protections, with a target of practitioners responsible for flood management. The tool covers two aspects of flood management: flood resistance and flood resilience. The flood resistance keeps out flood water to prevent flood damages, while flood resilience minimizes the impacts of floods once flooding occurs.
