Putting Integrated Flood Management into Practice

What is needed to implement IFM?

  • Clearly formulated and agreed IFM objectives at the policy and strategic level, embedded into a appropriate legislation and institutional arrangements.

  • Platform for cooperation and coordination among institutions responsible for different administrative units within a river basin which rarely coincide and various sectoral institutions that are involved in the management of floods.

  • Appropriate mechanism for public investment, economic incentives, knowledge enhancement and sharing and enforcing regulations through various instruments.

  • Community based institutions to facilitate participation of different sections of society in the IFM Process.

  • Information management and exchange among various stakeholders and the scientific communities.
