    The Home Flood Protection Program is a residential flood risk reduction education program that was launched by the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo in The goals of the Home Flood Protection Program are to help residents take action to reduce their flood risk and reduce damage in the event of a flood. to establish a framework for the assessment and management of flood risks, aiming at the reduction of the adverse consequences for human health, the environment, cultural heritage and economic activity associated with floods in the Community. The directive requires: • Preliminary flood risk assessment.

    In many places across Canada, flood preparedness measures and infrastructure evaluation are needed to reduce deadly future impact of flooding. By implementing unique protection systems like self-closing flood barriers as well as larger-scale dam and drainage systems, we can ensure that Canadians are as safe as possible from floods. 1.

In Canada, we try to discourage flood-vulnerable develop on the floodplain and to map flood risk areas. To this end, from the mids untilthere was a national program of flood damage reduction through mapping of floodplains areas and the encouragement of land use controls within these mapped areas.

Information about flood damage reduction in Canada. Canada Water Act. Passed inthe Canada Water Act superseded the Canada Water Conservation Assistance Act as the main vehicle for federal involvement in the management of Canada's water resources.

Under the Act, the federal government may participate in water resource management programs and water quality programs with one or. Effective adaptation to rising flood risk requires a diversified approach of interventions, which may include structural flood protection measures, early warning systems, risk-informed land.

Flood mapping is an important part of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), as it is the basis of the NFIP regulations and flood insurance requirements. FEMA's flood mapping program is called Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning, or Risk MAP.

FEMA maintains and updates data through flood maps and risk assessments. ———Flood Risk Assessment——— Chapter 4 Flood Risk Assessment Chapter Overview Any floodplain management program must be established on a sound technical and scientific basis in order to be effective, whether for flood loss reduction or to manage natural resources, or both.

Flood risk management begins with goal and policy development, identification of the hazard, analysis that includes assessment of the hazard’s potential impact, and development of flood risk management strategies, representing the amalgamation of the various measures discussed in this chapter and Chapter 7 available to deal with the flood.

to consider flood risk assessment (FRA) by itself without casting it in the framework of flood risk management and water management at large.

Any measures undertaken to reduce flood risk have an effect on other segments of water use (e.g. potable water, industrial use and irrigation, recreation, energy.

SUMMARY. In this chapter planners are presented with (1) terms and concepts related to flooding and the nature of areas subject to recurring floods; (2) critical issues to be addressed when considering flood hazards in the development planning process; (3) a technique for using remote sensing data for flood hazard assessments: and (4) two case studies describing the use of remote sensing data.

InEnvironment Canada introduced the Flood Damage Reduction Program (FDRP). Organized as a series of deals between Ottawa and provincial and territorial governments, its cornerstone was.

flood damage. Its effectiveness de-pends on the level of preparedness and correct response. Therefore the responsible authorities should provide timely and reliable flood warning, flood forecasting and information.

• A specific preparedness to alert, res-cue and safety measures should be planned and implemented at all levels. As part of Public Safety Canada’s mandate to mitigate losses resulting from natural events, a National Floodplain Management Framework has been prepared as an initial step in reducing flood risk across Canada.

Starting in the Flood Damage Reduction Program (FDRP), an initiative of Environment Canada, was implemented in collaboration with.Evaluation and Effectiveness Study – A study aimed at evaluating specific programs and response techniques in addition to assessing the success of specific programs and responses.
