Abstract

Flooding is a natural disaster that impacts people more than any other worldwide. The focus of this programme is on community flood resilience and how best to
select and implement adaptation strategies for the future. A resilient community has the capacity to better withstand a disaster and its social, economic, and environmental consequences. The ultimate goal of this approach is to provide insights and guidance to stakeholders to effectively address the urban flood challenges through action research and capacity building.
