Title Urban Flood Risk Management, Graz, Austria, 21st - 23rd September 2011



In the recent past, flood events occurred ever more frequently, and with snowballing effects for the landscape and its habitants. As a result of the current situations in many cities that relate to flooding the demand of the population for safety becomes top priority.


According to the European flood directive management plans have to be developed in the next few years. In this process non-structural measures, as risk communication, participation or warning systems come to the fore.


The aim of the symposium, organized by Graz University of Technology, is to provide a forum for scientists and engineers to exchange ideas and sample applications in order to gain new knowledge as well as to identify research needs. Thereby the whole spectrum of urban flood risk management and its related measures and experiences will be discussed.

Additionally a study tour will provide an insight into the flood situation in Graz and its vicinity.
