The Netherlands is extremely successful at an international level when it comes to flood protection. The country has a large number of specialists available in every conceivable area: from the design and construction of dikes, forecasting systems, and decision-supporting systems, through to crisis management, measurement systems and evacuation.



Together with Deltares, HR Wallingford and Samui, Flood Control 2015 was the co-organiser of the 2nd European Conference on Flood Risk Management. This conference, held from 20-22 November 2012 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, brought together over 480 policy makers and scientists from Europe and the rest of the world.

With a speech in the opening session, two special sessions, poster presentations, presentations of our serious games in the conference "game room", a 24-hour "pressure cooker" student event, many paper presentations and last but not least a booth at the exhibition we were well presented throughout the event.

In this section you can find softcopies of these items as well as a photo impression and several short films which were presented at the conference. We hope to see you at FLOODrisk 2016!

The conference marks the end of the Flood Control 2015 program. But due to its succes the consortium will continue innovation in public-private partnership. So the conference also marks the start of Flood Control 2100 - innovating for better decision making in the full disaster risk reduction cycle!
