This course introduces the concepts of flood risk analysis and management within the context of existing UK policies and legislation. The lectures and exercises are informed by the needs of Local Authorities and the Environment Agency, and updated to include issues of current relevance. Designed as a suitable follow on from the two-day river hydrology and hydraulics course, it is ideal for those involved in river and flood risk management. Although the course focusses on river and urban flooding, much of the course content also has relevance to tidal and coastal flooding.
