Keyword(s) Climate change adaptation - Flood resilience - Flood risk management

Flood risk management has proven successful at reducing the threat of some flooding hazards, preventing loss of life during flooding events and easing the economic burden to communities and regions following floods. It is a useful approach for assessing risks and guiding decisions on implementing protection measures. Recently, in addition to flood risk management, flood resilience is discussed as a new approach in academic literature. This contribution tries to unravel the relation between flood risk management and flood resilience. Therefore, three aspects are discussed: the definition of resilience, its measurement methods and also its possible implementation and embedding in flood risk management.
