Flood risk management

Unlike a number of the other infrastructure types, the demand for flood risk management is not directly related to population growth.

Future demand for flood risk management works can be reduced via alternative interventions such as land use planning, managed retreat from at risk areas (following an adaptive pathway process), and investment in improving the resilience of assets located within at-risk areas.

Good river management can help protect people, land and property from damage from flooding.
