Implement pre-event risk mitigation
Pre-event risk reduction and protection strategies are important and should be given priority over post-event relief and repairs. Yet they cannot work in isolation and all stakeholders need to communicate and coordinate to identify the most viable integrated flood risk reduction solutions, of which structural flood defence plans are a part. There is thus an urgent need for various stakeholders to participate more fully in pre-event mitigation and measures to enhance flood resilience.
