improved integration of increased urban development and flood risks in major cities - FloodResilienCity (FloodResilienCity)
Date du début: 30 avr. 2007, Date de fin: 30 déc. 2013 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

To integrate the increasing demand for more houses and other buildings with the increasing need for more and better flood risk management measures in North West European cities along rivers. Objectives to achieve that aim: 1. Awareness: To enhance the awareness and engagement in all aspects of flood risk and the means of managing it at: - the Policy level (politicians/decision makers). - among the Professionals (of the involved authorities and elsewhere) and - at the Public level (people. companies. developers. insurance companies). 2. Avoidance: To limit flood damage and ease recovery by planning and adapting buildings. infrastructure. surfaces and economic activities and building capacity in individuals and institutions to become more resilient 3. Alleviation: To reduce flood risk by implementing physical. technical. non-structural and procedural measures for the management of water systems. 4. Assistance: To provide support to recovery processes and to engage and build capacity in communities. and others prior to. during and after flood events 5. Strategy & Capacity: To develop the capacity to engage in the processes above to adapt to and manage flood risk by integrating the activities associated with objectives 1 – 4. The project wants to deliver a structural change in the mindset of the politicians. professionals and public in Brussels. Leuven. Mainz. Paris. Orléans. Dublin. Nijmegen and Bradford. That change should entail that all involved recognize the importance to address all 4-‘A’s in their policies to achieve Sustainable Flood risk Management. Moreover. they should recognize that location specific application of each of the 4-‘A’s delivers more policy options to facilitate new urban development plans. Achievements: FRC is about developing urban areas that are able to be resilient to changes that would otherwise cause an increasing likelihood of flooding. Our project outputs are described in four ways:Firstly, Our end conference summarises what we have done in FRC and places it within the context of what practitioners have to doSecondly, Sharing learning and experience draws together the overall learning experience within the revised Four As framework that we have developed. These form the FRC contribution to the Adaptation in the built, natural and water environments page group which also contain contributions from the MARE, SAWA and SKINT projectsThirdly, The flood resilient actions in FRC tell the story and provide the detail of what our city and other operational partners did to improve their resilience to different types of floodingFinally, Training provides material that readers can use and adapt to help raise awareness of flood management within their own organisations
