This paper is an attempt to involve stakeholders and civil society in decision-making with regard to policy, planning and implementation direction in flood management issues and lays down a framework for a rational approach. It introduces the elements of stakeholder and society participation in decision-making and addresses the need for an enabling environment in which appropriate laws and institutional frameworks make for effective participation.

This publication forms part of the Flood Management Policy Series published within the framework of the WMO/GWP Associated Programme on Flood Management. The series comprises publications on various aspects of flood management policy, including economic, environmental, legal and institutional, and social aspects. The series is based on expert groups formed for each publication to guide and advise the preparation process, and on a wide review and consultation process in the framework of conferences and direct correspondence with leading sector professionals in the area of natural resource management and development policy.
