Trend of Floods in Asia and Flood Risk Management with Integrated River Basin Approach

Abstract

This paper presents the findings of an analysis of flood disaster trends in Asian countries during the last 30 years. The analysis was carried out to understand the changing characteristics of flood disasters in Asian countries in the past three decades with the rapid changes in socio-economic conditions. The second half of the paper presents the results of a modeling study of flood risk management with the basin wide integrated approach. A case study application of a GIS and hydrologic model based distributed flood risk analysis system is demonstrated. Based on the analyses, conclusions are for flood risk management in the basin.
