Flood and Drought Management Tools


UNEP-DHI Partnership in collaboration with the International Water Association (IWA) and DHI is launched a series of technical webinars focusing on innovative approaches to Floods and Droughts planning and management for basins and water utilities. These webinars are primarily based on the outcomes of the ongoing Flood and Drought Management Tools project, but also include guest presentations from external stakeholders and relevant organisations.

These webinars are targeted at water practitioners of all levels, including policy-makers, technical staff and water managers, as well as water educators. The aim of these series of webinars is to give insight to the role that innovative approaches can play in supporting floods and droughts management at all scales - from basin to catchment, water utility and industry levels. Presentations will cover a broad range of technical tools, emerging technology advances, as well as practical experiences in applying these tools and technologies on ground.

The series includes two types of webinars:

  1. Technical webinar: typically a shorter session (30 min) with a single technology or tool presentation and a live demonstration
  2. Thematic topic webinar (30 to 50 min): with 2 or 3 presentations around a specific thematic topic or case study. Examples of thematic topics include urban flooding, drought management in Africa, water utility planning, etc.
