EG4 oral programme
In the framework of the programme group Europe in Geosciences (EG),
the session EG4 is devoted to flood resilience research
developed in Europe, particularly within European Hydrologie-meteorologie-complexite.
We will discuss the motivation behind this research, the main objectives of the
Hydrologie-meteorologie-complexite together with the current achievements.
The session aims to share experiences, connect and reflect on perceptions related
to flood resilience aspects.
The addressed questions are:
How do we define flood resilience ?
Which flood resilience technologies are considered?
How are flood resilient systems approached? In particular how do we deal with their complexity ?
Which methods and techniques to investigate and achieve flood resilience? What about resilience metrics ?
How to foster flood resilience research as a key discipline for modernization of European flood management system ?
A key outcome of the session discussions will be the development and refinement of new ideas for meeting the challenge of flood resilience systems.
