The World Bank's Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC), Urban Floods Community of Practice (UFCOP) and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), Tokyo Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Hub in collaboration with Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT), and Kobe City are organizing the 2nd Technical Deep Dive (TDD) for Integrated Urban Flood Risk Management (IUFRM) from April 22 – 26th, 2019 in Tokyo, Kobe and Osaka, Japan.
This TDD on IUFRM is the second edition of a learning series that brings practitioners from around the world to learn from each other and from international and Japanese experiences on in integrated urban flood risk management. Through the 5-day interactive learning and exchange, the TDD participants will gain a better understanding of IUFRM through exploring the following four key topics:
- Urban Flood Risk Assessment and Risk Communication
- Urban Flood Risk Management Investment Planning and Prioritization
- Urban Flood Risk Management Investment Implementation
- Ensuring Operations and Maintenance for Sustainability
The TDD will provide an opportunity for World Bank client country delegations to develop a deeper understanding of urban flood risks, and the integrated approach required to manage risks effectively. Through the weeklong engagement, the 2nd IUFRM TDD aims to inform the design and implementation of participating client countries' ongoing or planned investments.
