This paper presents Integrated Flood Management (IFM) as an integral part of IWRM, and describes the interplay between floods and the development process. It takes a look at traditional flood management practices; identifies the major challenges for flood managers and decision-makers dealing with sustainable development; and describes the basic tenets and requirements of IFM. This concept paper is the “flagship” publication of the “Flood Management Policy Series”. Subsequent papers
go into further detail to help flood managers and decision-makers implement the concept. An understanding of this series of papers requires familiarity with flood management issues and with the concept of IWRM.
