These guidelines for preparation of Detailed project report for flood management works primarily deals with structural part of flood management. These guidelines deliberated on the outlines of the detailed project report for flood management works for timely appraisal and clearance to provide relief to the flood affected people.

The Federal Government has approved a N497 million contract for the construction of the Ijegu Yala Dam in Yala Local Government Area of Cross River State.

This World Bank knowledge note describes a benchmarking method developed to track the progress of Pacific Island Countries toward sustainable flood risk management.

Vietnam released water from seven dangerously full reservoirs on Tuesday to avoid further flooding, after a weekend typhoon killed nearly 90 people.

This flood risk assessment and forecasting for the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basins summarizes the technical findings, includes highlights of the work, and links to the full technical reports and new interactive online resources.

This study explores the uncertainty introduced in global assessments of coastal flood exposure and risk by not accounting for water level attenuation due to land–surface characteristics. We implement a range of plausible water level attenuation values in the flood module of the Dynamic Interactive Vulnerability Assessment (DIVA) modelling framework and assess the sensitivity of flood exposure and flood risk indicators to differences in attenuation rates. Results show a reduction of up to 47 % in area exposure and even larger reductions in population exposure and expected flood damages.

This white paper documents research conducted to assess the impact of climate change in Southeast Asia, especially in regards to differing consequences for rural and urban areas and in relation to flood control and ecosystem vulnerability.
