This publication is the first module of a ‘Resource Manual on Flash Flood Risk Management’ and focuses on community-based approaches to managing flash floods as well as a resource for training on community-based flash flood risk management. This module was written for community-based organisations working in flash flood management, community workers, and local government and non-governmental organisations working directly with communities.The second module looks at technology-based, non-structural measures for 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).
