Toelichting (Engels) After building the Wivenhoe Dam, the community of the Australian state of Queensland thought it had Brisbane River flood risks under control. After years of severe drought, attention for the river was largely focused on water quality and a diminishing supply of freshwater for the city of Brisbane. Then tropical cyclones and associated seasonal rainfall suddenly contributed to flooding large areas of Queensland in January 2011, including the flood plains along the Brisbane River. The Queensland Floods Commission of Inquiry was established to investigate the circumstances of the floods occurring which led to recommendations for better practices relating to community safety; land use planning; forecasting of flooding; and management and operation of water infrastructure being made. The Queensland Recovery Authority has facilitated the restoration of a great deal of the damage, but a consolidated integrated river basin management has yet to be determined. The current approach relies upon the cooperation and co-ordination of a number of policies and on the ground delivery agencies.
