Challenges, Lessons, and Innovations for Strengthening Integrated Flood Risk Management

09 March 2022 to 05 April 2022

This webinar seeks to engage with flood managers, decision-makers, technical specialists, and ADB program professionals for an exchange of ideas and experiences directed towards strengthening the practice of flood management across Asia.

The webinars will be conducted in a series of five 90-minute sessions held over 5 weeks starting from 09 March 2022. Access is open to all who register. Presentations will be in English. Simultaneous translation is available for Vietnamese and Bahasa.

The webinar series is an initiative of the Knowledge Support and Technical Assistance Project on Strengthening Integrated Flood Risk Management (TA 9634-REG). Funded with support from the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF), the project has conducted a range of investigations to address flood risk challenges and developed knowledge products on selected issues.
