Average annual cost of flood damage in China is great, and its physical and social impacts on communities can be devastating.  The forum will focus on the challenges of managing and reducing flood impacts, building community resilience, and using storm water in a climate of austerity. There is no solution which can solve all these challenges, but through knowledge sharing and collaboration we stand a chance.

Forum topics:

  • Current situation of China's urban flood control and its challenges and countermeasures
