Workshop – October 29, 2014
Breaching the Barriers to Effective Flood Risk Management
Based on comments and questions raised at previous seminars, this workshop was designed to identify the issues and opportunities that can make flood risk management more effective.
The purpose of the workshop was to:
- explore the cross-cultural perspectives to mobilising support for integrated floodplain planning and management using a Queensland and a Dutch comparison; to stimulate thinking and discussion on the topic;
- recognise the embedded values in the planning and risk management approaches observed within professional, political and social contexts for implementation a flood risk management plan – small panel discussion;
- identify the existing barriers to effective implementation of flood planning measures and then workshopping ways in which these barriers can be overcome – small groups will develop options and responses for each barrier.
