This publication is the second module of a ‘Resource Manual on Flash Flood Risk Management’ and looks at technology-based, non-structural measures for managing flash floods. This module is designed for professionals from both social science and physical science backgrounds. Its objective is to build the capacity of district-level disaster mitigation and relief workers, professionals from community-based and non-governmental organisations such as hydrologists, meteorologists, engineers, and so on. The first module focuses on community-based approaches to managing flash floods. These two modules intend to contribute towards reducing disaster risk in the Himalayas.
The modules were produced under the project ‘Capacity Building for Flash Flood Risk Management and Sustainable Development in the Himalayas’, funded by the United States Agency for International Development, Office for Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA).
