Best practices for reducing the risk of future damage to homes from riverine and urban flooding

Source(s):  Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR)

A report on recovery and rebuilding in southern Alberta:

This paper sets out 12 recommendations on actions the Government of Alberta can take to reduce the risk of flood damage to homes. It was prepared at the request of the Insurance Bureau of Canada following the flooding in southern Alberta in June 2013, which resulted in four fatalities and unprecedented damage to property. Using this window of opportunity, the paper demonstrates that most disaster damage can be prevented through the application of existing and emerging knowledge about building disaster resilient communities and invites the Government of Alberta and other stakeholders to take action to reduce the risk of loss from flooding, tornadoes, wildfires and other perils.
