Floods cause distress and damage wherever they happen and flooding from heavy rainfall, rivers, estuaries and the sea threatens many millions of people in Thailand. The severe flooding in 2011 caused millions of losses for Thai nationals and foreign companies alike claiming lives and destabilizing the economy. Insurance losses from flooding have increased significantly since 1990 and flood management in Asia is changing with a move from flood protection and defense to comprehensive flood management.

Conference topics include:

  • Protecting dams
  • Flood protection case studies
  • Managing flood related diseases and ensuring proper sanitation during floods
  • An integrated flood defense system for factories and industrial estates
  • Flood risk assessment and indentifying potential flooding areas
  • Flood forecasting and early warning systems
  • Safeguarding and rehabilitating the nation and people from mega water disasters
  • ASEAN'S latest defense against the next flooding season, plans and strategies
