Community of Users Side Event on “Flood Emergency Response” – Friday 21 October 2016 (morning)

      | More

Flood Emergency Response Community of Users – from theory to practice?

This side event to the FLOODrisk2016 conference aims to identify practical, efficient and intuitive ways to support working practice of the Emergency Response Community of Users – in this instance, in relation to flood risk management and emergency response.

The morning sessions will facilitate group discussion as to how interactions amongst science, policy, industry, practitioners (first responders) and citizens via local actors could be orchestrated at different levels (international/EU, national, regional/local) via networking developed within the EU "Community of Users on Secure, Safe and Resilient Societies" as well as the Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre, and with inputs from various H2020 projects, such as the Anywhere project with a focus on floods and flood management .

Discussions will run in two parallel round-tables sessions, enabling participants to attend in both group discussions, dealing namely with:

Round-table 1: Flood Risk Management tools – Opportunities, drawbacks, sharing successes

  • Research transfer / uptake
  • Link to market dimension

Round-table 2: Institutional FRM aspects – Gaps in knowledge (policy & research)

  • Interactions among different actors
  • Links from International (Sendai) / EU to regional implementers

This session will also integrate findings from the Special Session on Emergency Response Management held on Thursday 20 October 2016.
