Special Feature in "Ecology and Society" on Resilient Flood Risk Governance
03/01/17 Filed in: Journal
The journal Ecology and Society
has come out with a special feature
on resilient flood risk governance. The publication is a deliverable of the EU project STAR-FLOOD
("Strengthening and redesigning European flood risk practices: towards appropriate and resilient flood risk governance arrangements"). The STAR-FLOOD project designed policies to better deal with river flood risks in urban areas across Europe from a combined public administration and legal perspective, with the aim to make European regions more resilient to flood risks.
STAR-FLOOD investigated strategies for dealing with flood risks in 18 vulnerable urban regions in six European countries. This special feature of E&J
aims to disseminate the project's main research results to an audience of scholars and practitioners with an interest in increasing the resilience of social-ecological systems to catastrophic natural hazards, and flood risks in particular. The special feature is available here
. It includes 16 articles in all.
