Floods pose a threat to human life, critical infrastructure and economic operations, especially in complex, high-density, urban environments. A simple approach to making urban areas resilient is to consider a four-phase approach to Flood Resilience starting with Prevention, Preparation, Response and Recovery.
Our Flood Resilience Circle depicts the three steps in each phase. Royal HaskoningDHV's flood resilient solutions cover the whole spectrum from adaptation to prevention: from early warning systems using smart, interactive tools and analyses, to flood protection schemes to protect valuable assets. From assessment through to solution we draw on a network of deep ‘smarts’ specialised in an understanding of the physics, social environment and stakeholders involved, translating this into the real world with an eye on commercial and economic growth.
