This report offers an overview of issues and challenges in managing urban flood risks which reviews socio-economic impacts of flooding. Impacts of urban development on flood risks are described in the context of adapting to climate change.

The report comprises a synthesis of recent developments in innovative strategies for effective urban flood management. It also contains case studies of innovative strategies for effective urban flood management. Finally, it reviews policy options derived from collaborative work on urban flood management and a regional expert consultation.

The publication highlights the importance of an enabling environment that is characterized by conducive socio-economic conditions, effective governance and institutional structures, resilient communities, and policy frameworks for disaster mitigation in general and urban flooding in particular.
