Spatial Flood Risk Management: Implementing Catchment-based Retention and Resilience on Private Land

The book calls for the interconnection of land policy instruments and flood risk management in Europe.

Centralising the role of land and landowners, Spatial Flood Risk Management brings together knowledge from socio-economy, public policy, hydrology, geomorphology, and engineering to establish an interdisciplinary knowledge base on spatial approaches to managing flood risks. The final LAND4FLOOD COST Action book brings together more than 25 authors from different disciplines and different European countries to discuss existing challenges.
