SYNOPSIS

Global flood risk is increasing due to factors such as climate change and population growth, making floods a major threat to communities and infrastructure worldwide. Floods can cause significant damage to property, disrupt transportation and communication networks, and result in loss of life and economic productivity. To combat disaster risk reduction of various disasters, including floods, the World Meteorological Organization has launched the Early Warnings for All initiative. This technical talk will cover various aspects of flood risk management, including: flood risk assessment based on continuous hydrological monitoring; selection of suitable hydrological instruments for continuous monitoring; proper monitoring site selection; equipment installation and maintenance; implementation of early warning systems; and real-time data transfer, management, and data distribution. The talk will also include real-world case studies of successful projects implemented in multiple countries, providing participants with valuable insights into flood risk management practices. Additionally, the talk will discuss the importance of early warning systems in mitigating the impacts of floods. The talk is expected to increase participants' awareness of flood management and enable them to make informed decisions in this field.
