Analysis of probability and magnitude of flood hazards from rainfall events, in rivers or along coasts, including hazard mapping.

Assessment, prioritisation and planning of flood risk management measures and instruments, considering e.g. tolerable risk, cost-effectiveness, technical and political feasibility, etc.

Prediction of imminent flood events such as storm surges, river floods or tsunamis aimed at early warning and event management, including meteorological and hydrological forecasting.

Estimation and assessment of individual and societal consequences of actual or potential flooding, including direct and indirect economic damage, loss-of-life and losses of imponderables.

Modelling of the flooding process and assessment of relevant parameters, such as flood depth, flow velocities, etc. Examples: flooding of protected areas after embankment breaching or of floodplains after dam breach.

Development and assessment of measures and instruments to mitigate the consequences of imminent flooding, e.g. by flood fighting or evacuation.

Design, reliability analysis, monitoring and maintenance of structural flood protection measures, such as embankments, dams, barriers, dunes, etc.

Learning form past events, and planning future evacuation and rescue operations, with emphasis on feasibility and effectiveness.

Designing and planning FRM strategies for the long-term in view of uncertain climate change and socio-economic developments; adaptative capacity, robustness, etc.

Assessing the susceptibility of people, communities, economies and areas to floods, their vulnerability and recovery potential.

Public and expert perception of (flood) risk, and its implications for communication to raise awareness and preparedness. Effectiveness of risk communication in influencing people's behaviour.
