This publication presents the findings and results of the 'International Workshop on Flash Floods and Sustainable Development in the Himalayas' organised by ICIMOD, the China Meteorological Administration (CMA), and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in Lhasa, PR China, in October 2005, with support from the Government of Norway and the USAID Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA). It presents up-to-date knowledge about flash floods and their management in each of ICIMOD's eight regional member countries, possibilities for forecasting and early warning, and discussions about the importance of community-based disaster reduction management. The book concludes with the ‘Lhasa Declaration for Flash Flood Management’, which provides important guidance not only for the Himalayan region, but also for the world as a whole.
