What is in the Strategic Floodplain Management Plan for the Brisbane River, our communities and us, as professionals?
Unpacking the Strategic Floodplain Management Plan for the Brisbane River
Since the Floods of January 2011, there has been an extended effort to initiate, undertake and finalize a Strategic Floodplain Management Plan for the Brisbane River floodplain and catchments. In March 2019, the SFMP was launched and over the last 5 years the Flood CoP network has had a long interest on what it might entail and what it means for professional working in sectors that overlap with the actions arising out of the Plan.
