Abstract: The transition on the flood strategies from flood control to management is the catchphrase in modern society. The zoning methods of flood risk should be considered as the basis of flood management. The delineation of flood frequency, hazard and disaster are introduced in the paper. Three major river basins are selected to delineate the flood risk based on flood inundation frequency. Some conclusions are expected to provide the referees for the policy on flood control and disaster reduction in China.
