The Training Workshop on Integrated Flood Management (IFM) for Flood hazard Mapping was held in Takeo, Japan, from 8 to 9 February 2011. The training course was organized by JICA/ICHARM, in collaboration with UNESCO-IHE and MLIT Takeo River Office.
Flood Hazard Mapping is one of the most effective and practical tools toward Integrated Flood Management (IFM), which has been instrumental in defining what role a flood plays in the development process of societies, and what the sustainable flood management options are. Considering the situation in Asia, JICA and ICHARM organized a training course for practitioners in flood management and planned to hold a training workshop in the field. Saga Plain, where is located in Kyushu Island of Japan, 1,000 kilometer west from Tokyo, is famous for lowland area and ecologically rich wetland, Ariake Sea. Because of its geographical background, people in this floodplain are so enthusiastic about flood management that quite numbers of communities have taken part in flood hazard mapping. The characteristics of their mapping can be seen in the map which covers not only flood hazards but also daily emergency information, such as location of hospitals or fire pools. This is why MLIT Takeo River Office was selected as the field of the training workshop. The workshop was developed to familiarize participants from Asian countries with the flood hazard mapping in the context of community or land use planning. It provided participants with in depth views of the various dimensions of flood hazard mapping and will allow them to develop an integrated perspective on floods, floodplains and development process in their own countries.
