Task 13 focused on strategies and strategy development for long-term planning of Flood Risk Management (FRM) from a social science viewpoint.

The task has produced guidance on strategic planning for flood risk management, which is of relevance to policy makers and practitioners within government authorities concerned with the development of flood risk management strategies. The guidance views the formulation of strategy as the key step between technical understanding, policy and practice. It is based on research into decision-making processes and is informed by the historical development of flood risk management in the EU from flood protection to risk based approaches.

Key words: flood risk management, long-term planning, integrated strategies,
