This note offers policy makers and practitioners an overview of the key aspects of land use planning used to manage flood risks in cities across the world. It includes examples from developed and developing countries to provide insight into what has worked in different contexts. It does not provide prescriptive solutions or step-by-step methodologies, since approaches will vary by context. Solutions and methodologies will depend on local land use challenges and institutional capacities, on the scale at which land use planning is undertaken, and finally on the local land use planning culture and land tenure regime, apart from technical and financial capacities.
