This publication presents the concept of integrated flood management as a component of integrated water resource management. It emphasizes that structural measures are most effective and sustainable when implemented together with appropriate non-structural measures keeping in mind physical measures for slope stabilization and erosion control. The description are simple yet effective, they can be implemented using local and low-cost materials with a minimum of external materials and technical support and a low environmental impact.
This publication highlights: (i) landslides and debris flows; (ii) landslide, dam, lakes and glacial lakes; (iii) bioengineering measures; (iv) physical methods for river training; (v) structural measures for flood management in context of integrated water resources management.
