The guide on urban risk management is aimed to be used by decision and policy makers, technical specialists, central, regional and local government officials, and concerned stakeholders in the community sector, civil society and non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. It starts with a summary for policy makers which outlines and describes the key areas which policy makers need to consider when creating policy directions and an integrated strategic approach for urban flood risk management. The guide consists of seven chapters, organized as: understanding flood hazard; understanding flood impacts; integrated flood risk management (structural measures and non-structural measures); evaluating alternative flood risk management options: tools for decision makers; implementing integrated flood risk management; and conclusions. The guide can be found at the World Bank website.
