Abstract

Flood management demands an institutionally and sectorally integrated response that can work effectively across multiple scales over time. This is an immensely challenging problem for legal frameworks that will only get more difficult as global change continues and flood risk increases. Implementation capacity and the effectiveness of legal frameworks varies tremendously across jurisdictions, but experience suggest progress is being made. The chapter concludes that there are two integrating tracks being followed with respect to flood management: disaster risk management, and consolidation with water resources management. More effective consolidation of these, along with advances in human rights approaches will be beneficial.
