integrated Flood Risk Management Community of Practice
A knowledge exchange partnership that shares experiences that can reduce flood and drought impacts - a Queensland and Netherlands Collaboration
Addressing water management opportunities and challenges in flood and drought scenarios in urban and regional settings is a global occurrence. In Queensland, the significant impacts of extreme flood events (2010-11 and 2013) has resulting in a focus for government agencies and communities to seek solutions that can provide long term benefits and enhance community resilience to future extreme events.
Water management professionals from the Netherlands and Queensland are invited to share their knowledge and expertise in integrated flood risk management (IFRM) through this Community of Practice (CoP).
The role of this CoP is to provide foundational awareness, skills and expertise to Queensland's professionals and organisations who are involved in IFRM. This platform provides an opportunity for flood risk management initiatives in Queensland to be planned, developed and implemented based on an understanding of effective approaches used in the Netherlands and other parts of the world and adapted to meet specific Queensland urban and regional needs.
