1 25/07/2014 The FloodProBE project Lessons learned and new approaches for improvement of urban flood defense in a European context WGF 15 meeting, April 2 nd 2014 Budapest - Hungary Derk van Ree, Deltares (The Netherlands)

2 Research in support of flood-related policies and societal needs Courtesy Philippe Quevauviller 2 25/07/2014

4 Flood Risk Management components in FloodProBE solintel 25/07/2014 4

5 Reliability of Urban Flood defense Flood protection wall, Severn River, Bewdley, UK 25/07/2014 5

6 General framework for assessment of levees Segment assessment: Internal erosion Vegetation Transitions System assessment: Geophysical methods Remote sensing methods / Lidar 25/07/2014 6

7 Flood defences: Transitions - type and potential problems 25/07/2014 7

10 System analysis: critical infrastructure and hotspots 25/07/

11 Simple tool: assets risk assessment matrix 25/07/

12 Flood-damage estimation of buildings according to their construction 25/07/

13 Failure Modes Effects Analysis: components/networks interdependency 25/07/

14 Construction technologies and concepts for flood defences and damage mitigation 25/07/2014

15 General framework and a Quick Scan tool Interventions

16 Multifunctional flood defence: choosing technology and functions 25/07/

17 Example of catalogue of Multifunctional Flood Defences options 25/07/

18 Floodproofing concepts for hotspot buildings 25/07/

19 Floodproofing hotspot buildings: Applicability 25/07/

20 Floodproofing critical infrastructures (technologies) 25/07/

21 Policy brief 1: Important lessons that require imediate action Critical Infrastructures is not given enough attention from flood risk perspective. Different stakeholders are responsible for direct and indirect consequences such as societal disruption. Transitions are often the main cause for flooding due to failure of the flood defences, but transitions are widely ignored in safety assessments Start gathering data during and right after events 25/07/

22 Beyond FloodProBE, ILH and FP7 FLOODrisk2016 Palais des Congres, Lyon (F) st October 2016 Organised by IRSTEA with support from HRW, Deltares and Samui Establish a self sustaining international Flood Risk Management Community of Practice Shared view from e.g. FloodProBE / ILH-project-teams and conference participants to ensure continuity and expansion of existing networks Opportunity to kick-start initiative by submitting EU-proposal under Horizon2020 Water 4a 2014 Call Current status: 10 core partners, >30 confirmed associate partners expected to grow to approx /07/

23 What are Communities of Practice? groups of people who share Jackie Banks, EA a concern, a set of problems or a passion about a topic, and who deepen their knowledge and expertise in this area by interacting on an ongoing basis Etienne Wenger, Richard McDermott, William Snyder (2002). Cultivating communities of practice: a guide to managing knowledge. Boston MA: Harvard Business School Press 23

24 Community of Practice Platform that allows a) an overview of solutions and b) flexibility to create, develop and share new ideas and solutions Means: Joint meetings/workshops of policy makers, researchers, engineers and managers Policy formulation Research formulation Share experiences from implementation projects Web-based platform: discussion forum, exchange of tools, data collection and repository Guidance and training, advisory services 25 juli 2014
