LAND4FLOODS - Towards an Interdisciplinary Understanding of (Private) Land for Flood Risk Management
More than 60 academics and stakeholders from Europe and guests from USA and Australia met in Riga, Latvia (19-21 June) to discuss challenges and potentials in storing water on private land for tackling flooding:www.land4flood.eu/2nd-action-mc-meeting-and-worshop-riga-19-21-june-2018.
This initiative brings together multiple disciplines around the issue of land and flood risk management, such as hydrologists, modellers, economists, lawyers, policy science, etc. to work towards innovations in dealing with flood risk in Europe.
An IWRA webinar on this same topic has been broadcasted live from this event (www.iwra.org/land4floodwebinar). Watch the short impression videos with statements on how land matters in flood risk management from different perspectives:
The event was organised in the frame of EU COST programme.
