FLOODrisk 2016

Date of event: 17-21 October 2016 Lyon, France

3rd European Conference on Flood Risk Management

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

Following the successful FLOODrisk 2008 and 2012 conferences, held in Oxford (UK) and Rotterdam (Netherlands) and following the first round of implementation of the European Flood Directive, 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.

FLOODrisk 2016 will include contributions from a variety of national, European and international flood related initiatives as well as wider international practice. In particular, science policy interfacing, the applicability of flood risk research into practice, communication and international networking will be considered.
