Transboundary Floods: Reducing Risks Through Flood Management

Transboundary Floods: Reducing Risks Through Flood Management These edited proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop detail the ongoing search for better ways of protecting human life, land, property and the environment by improved flood management. Such flood management is difficult enough in river basins controlled by a single authority, and becomes even more challenging when dealing with transboundary floods, which may originate in one country or jurisdiction and propagate downstream to another country, or jurisdiction. ; Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Transboundary Floods: Reducing Risks and Enhancing Security Through Improved Flood Management Planning, Baile Felix (Oradea), Romania, 4-8 May 2005; Flood damages are increasing as a result of frequent occurrence of large floods in many parts of the world, existing and continuing encroachment of development onto flood plains and aging flood protection structures.
