Governance and management of flood disaster risks

Improve understanding of the impacts of water-related disasters in urban and rural settings and the effectiveness of risk reduction measures and decisions, on human insecurities and ecosystems under current and plausible future climate conditions. Based on this understanding and analysis of existing policies, disaster management norms and narratives, this program will identify practical ways to more fairly negotiate acceptable distribution of risks and integrate such measures into development strategies, policies and practices. In parallel, the program will offer gender-and socially-responsive practical measures to ensure that the resilience of social groups of women and men to flood disaster risks is strengthened and safeguarded.
