IFA (“Institutions for Floods in Asia”) project focuses on institutional dimension of river floods risk reduction in the Asian countries that along with structural approaches constitutes the core in human responses to floods. IFA aggregates and compares results of country-based research in order to further explore the problem How to strengthen capacities and performance of institutions to reduce flood risks. Rich evidence for testing IFA approaches is provided from recent case-studies of big river floods in Bangladesh, Burma/Myanmar, Japan, Russia,......
Policy framework for post-disaster for the affected groups rather
comprehensive. The Government shall provide special groups affected, and support measures
support level, policies on rescue and restore production as well as policy advocacy
relief. Policy in post-disaster recovery is a top-down approach, so that governments
level of response time and quick to minimize loss of human life and property and special

The EU Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) is probably the most significant
legislative instrument in the water field that was introduced on an international basis
for many years. It moves towards integrated environmental management with key
objectives to prevent any further deterioration of water bodies, and protect and enhance
the status of aquatic ecosystems and associated wetlands. It aims to promote sustainable
water consumption and will contribute to mitigating the effects of floods and droughts.
The use of radio-frequency communication—commonly referred to
as wireless communication—is becoming more pervasive as well as more
economically and socially important. Technological progress over many
decades has enabled the deployment of several successive generations
of cellular telephone technology, which is now used by many billions
of people worldwide; the near-universal addition of wireless local area
networking to personal computers; and a proliferation of actual and proposed
uses of wireless communications.
Malnutrition results from a complex set of factors and not one simple cause. The UNICEF conceptual
model of causes of malnutrition (page 16) provides a useful framework for the discussion of the
causes of malnutrition in Somalia. The volatile political situation and civil unrest have led to a
chronic and continuing humanitarian crisis that is at the root of the high prevalence of malnutrition
in Somalia. Somalia is also prone to drought and floods.
Late in 2005, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, U.S. newspapers were filled with
speculation as to whether New Orleans would continue to exist as a great and unique
American city. Levee and floodwall failure had inundated large parts of the city and resulted
in more than 1,500 deaths and catastrophic damage to property and the economy. In
2011, extreme amounts of precipitation, inadequate levees, and possible mismanagement of
reservoirs contributed to widespread flooding around Bangkok, Thailand.
