H056:
Global Floods: Forecasting, Monitoring, Risk Assessment, and Socioeconomic Response





Session ID#: 24965

Session Description:
The increase in the frequency of flood events due to acceleration of the global water cycle induces more risks to human settlements, especially those on floodplains, in an era of rapid population growth. Monitoring and forecasting of the occurrence, intensity, and evolution of flood events have been critical for many humanitarian and government agencies in their efforts to prepare, mitigate, and manage responses to disaster to save lives and limit damage. Risk assessments prior to events are also vital for developing short-term and long-term management plans.

We hope this session could also aim to contribute to the aims of the Global Flood Partnership (GFP), i.e. to foster global flood forecasting, monitoring and impact assessment to strengthen preparedness and response and to reduce global flood disaster losses. We solicit contributions from modeling and remote sensing, socioeconomic sciences, hazard response, and preparedness fields that study flood hazards and risks across spatial scales.
