Regional Co-Operation in the Twenty-First Century on Flood Control and Management in Asia and the Pacific

Format *
Floods continue to be one of the most severe annual disasters, particularly in Asia. The intensity of flood disasters appears to have increased in the region in the past decade, especially during the past few years. This publication discusses the process adopted for the formulation of a conceptual framework involving effective regional cooperation based on three main components: a review of flood control and management experiences in the region; the experience of regional cooperation and trends at the regional and international levels; and the current strategic planning techniques. In addition, case studies are presented on development and achievements in flood control and management in Thailand; the upper Parramatta River Catchment Trust in Australia; the Klang River Basin in Malaysia; flood control along the Mississippi in the United States; and new developments in flood control in the Rhine river in Germany.
