Collaborative research on flood resilience in urban areas: the corfu project
Author : Jelena Batica and Philippe Gourbesville
Collaborative research on flood resilience in urban areas (CORFU) is an interdisciplinary international project founded by European Union under the 7 research framework FP7 that will look at advanced and new strategies and provide adequate measures for improved flood management in cities both in Europe and in Asia. Vision of the project is using these differences to create synergies that will improve resilience of cities. Through the four-year collaborative research program involving leading European and Asian institutions in this subject, the latest technological advances will be cross-fertilized with traditional and emerging approaches to living with floods. Very significant is strong need for strengthening the efficient transfer of research knowledge to policymakers with the perspective of reducing uncertainties of predictive scenarios and creating good understanding of issues at policy stage.
