52014-001: Strengthening Integrated Flood Risk Management | Asian Development Bank

Regional: Strengthening Integrated Flood Risk Management

Sovereign (Public) Project | 52014-001 Status: Active

The technical assistance aims to strengthen the design and implementation of Integrated Flood Risk Management (IFRM) solutions, enhancing knowledge and application of IFRM strategies in DMCs. The TA will provide targeted technical support for program and project preparation and promote more holistic IFRM solutions, including basin-scale and nature-based solutions.

It is composed of 3 outputs: (1) knowledge to implement IFRM projects enhanced; (2) evaluations of DMC flood risk management and investment strategies conducted; and (3) IFRM concepts integrated into ADB investments.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Asia Pacific region faces increasing risks from water-related disasters such as floods, droughts and storms. In 2016 alone, Asia reported losses worth $87 billion from disasters of which many are flood-related. Increasingly frequent and severe floods have caused significant loss of life and damage due to rapid economic growth and urbanization along rivers and coastal areas.

Flood mitigation civil works have been the primary focus of flood risk management with an emphasis on evacuating flood water as quickly as possible or storing it temporarily. However, it is increasingly recognized that piecemeal approaches are not the best flood risk management solutions since they can create inequalities, contribute to ecological degradation, and may be inflexible.

A more comprehensive and integrated approach, taking a basin-wide or catchment perspective that may include nature-based and other soft approaches to maximize net benefits from the use of flood plains is rapidly gaining acceptance among flood management professionals. Such approach incorporates social, economic, financial, environmental, legal and institutional aspects, as well as engineering and emergency response requirements.
