Seventh International Conference on Flood Management (ICFM7)

The 7th International Conference on Flood Management (ICFM7) offers a unique forum to discuss the many issues that affect society’s responses to flood risk and associated issues.


ICFM offers an international conference platform, hosted every 3 years, to discuss a range of flood related issues and realise significant change in a multidisciplinary, multisectoral area. It provides a unique opportunity for various specialists including engineers, planners, natural and social scientists, health specialists, disaster managers, decision makers, and policy makers to come together to exchange ideas and experiences.


ICFM7 will consider the range of issues and challenges that affect flood management, particularly the need to build resilience into future planning. By providing a forum for researchers, industry, policymakers and other stakeholders, the conference will identify the key concerns and significant challenges of the future.
