International Conference on Flood Management – ICFM6

Floods in a changing Environment

16-18 September 2014 | Sao Paulo, Brazil

 

The 6th International Conference on Flood Management (ICFM6) marks the continued advancement of flood management practices and policies around the world. The name change from “Defence” as used in the previous four events to “Management” is reflective of the more integrative approaches to flood management that nations are increasingly employing.

The first International Symposium on Flood Defence, held in Kassel, Germany in 2000, emphasized flood defence measures with each successive event (Beijing 2002, Nijmegen 2005, Toronto 2008 and Tsukuba 2011) evolving towards more integrative approaches, including risk, vulnerability and capacity building.

ICFM is the only recurring international conference wholly focused on flood related issues. It is designed to bring together practitioners and researchers alike, including engineers, planners, health specialists, disaster managers, decision makers, and policy makers engaged in various aspects of flood management. It provides a unique opportunity for these various specialists to come together to exchange ideas and experiences.
