Summary: This book provides a logical framework and understanding of how flood risk to communities can be considered and managed. It discusses approaches that allow consideration of the variation of risk between and within floodplains, and across flood events of different scales. It investigates how land use planning activities that support community growth can be informed by an understanding of the variation in flood behaviour, flood function, and isolation of an area from safety, and the associated risks to the community and the built environment. With full colour figures and diagrams in a colour plate section, international case studies in land use planning, emergency management and flood mitigation included, this book provides value for engineers, town planners and professionals involved in emergency management, as well as for postgraduate students studying flood risk solutions.
