This policy document is the baseline reference document outlining Integrated Flood Management (IFM) as a viable development policy option. Since IFM is essentially a dynamic notion, the perception presented in this third revised edition also includes a number of emerging issues, such as risk management, urban floods, climate variability and change, and adaptive management. Through this new edition, WMO hopes that the concept paper will continue to play a key outreach role to flood managers, policymakers and development planners, as well as to those responsible for formulating flood management strategies and policies.
