[Conference] ICFM 2014 - 6th International Conference on Flood Management (ICFM6)

16 - 18 September 2014

The 6th International Conference on Flood Management (ICFM6) will be held in São Paulo (SP), Brazil September 16-18, 2014, and will be organised by the Brazilian Water Resources Association and Acquacon Consultoria.

ICFM6 marks the continued advancement of flood management practices and policies around the world. The name change from "Defence” as used in the previous four events to "Management" is reflective of the more integrative approaches to flood management that nations are increasingly employing. The first International Symposium on Flood Defence, held in Kassel, Germany in 2000, emphasized flood defence measures with each successive event (Beijing 2002, Nijmegen 2005, Toronto 2008 and Tsukuba 2011) evolving towards more integrative approaches, including risk, vulnerability and capacity building. The ICFM6 theme is "Floods in a changing Environment".

ICFM is the only recurring international conference fully focused on flood related issues. It is designed to bring together practitioners and researchers alike, including engineers, planners, health specialists, disaster managers, decision makers, and policy makers engaged in various aspects of flood management. It provides a unique opportunity for these various specialists to come together to exchange ideas and experiences.

 

Date: September 16-18, 2014

Venue: São Paulo, Brazil
