Management systems, disaster risks, flooding


A review of flood disaster risk systems is conducted, as they are fundamental to prevent, mitigate and respond to flood-related hazards. These risk systems are a combination of preventive, preparedness and response measures that seek to minimize the impact of floods on people's lives and infrastructure. The key is risk identification, monitoring, early warning, planning, land use planning, maintenance of flood control infrastructure, awareness raising, development of flood response plans, implementation of recovery programs, how reconstruction will be carried out, regional, national and international cooperation. It is concluded that flood disaster risk management systems are an essential component of the resilience of societies to this type of natural hazards. Their proper implementation can make the difference between tragedy and safety for flood-affected communities by enabling an organized response and faster recovery after a catastrophic event.
