Integrated Flood Risk Analysis and Management Methodologies


FLOODsite covers the physical, environmental, ecological and socio-economic aspects of floods from rivers, estuaries and the sea. 

It considers flood risk as a combination of hazard sources, pathways and the consequences of flooding on the "receptors" - people, property and the environment.
