Source(s):  Associated Programme on Flood Management (APFM)

This document presents case studies that have incorporated environmental (ecological) aspects in flood management. The four case studies focus on:

  • Trinity River Restoration Program, USA
  • Channel-widening and open check dam in the Upper Drau River, Austria
  • Integrated sediment management in the Mimikawa River, Japan
  • Creating a secondary channel in the Waal River under the Room for River concept, Netherlands

Each case study addresses the interrelationship of ecosystem services and flood processes; key challenges to addressing environmental aspects in flood management; decision-making processes involving various stakeholders; and capacity development to the maximum possible extent.
