Flood Planner: A manual for the natural management of river floods
THE requirement for a sustainable approach to flood management involves taking an informed catchment approach, using natural river processes to manage floods where they arise, not just where they have their effect, and putting the emphasis on soft engineering solutions. Achieving sustainable flood management involves social, economic, planning and natural components.
Flood Planner describes the natural component of sustainable flood management: natural flood management (NFM). This unique and practical resource for flood risk managers outlines the background to natural flood management and helps them perform their role in meeting current and future legislation. It provides evidence of the effect of NFM on run-off rates and storage and describes the techniques required to successfully lower flood risk to communities within that catchment.
