|Guidance on Flash Flood Management
|This report seeks to synthesize and, as far as possible, conceptualize the approach that can be taken to address the issue of flash floods both on the national and (for flash floods most importantly) on the lower administrative scales of districts and communities.
|Integrated Flood Management Tool Series: Flood Forecasting and Early Warning
|Associate Programme on Flood Management (Global Water Partnership, World Meteorlogical Organization)
|This tool is designed to provide a practical, step-by-step guide to developing and operating the total flood warning system to agencies responsible for creating and communicating flood warnings. It covers predicting flood levels and the likely impacts of a flood, designing and disseminating warning messages, as well as the means of reviewing the system’s effectiveness following an event.
|Austrialian Institute for Disaster Resilience
|The Guide is designed for use by all those who have roles to play in developing and operating flood warning systems and providing flood warning services.
|General Guidelines for Setting-Up a Community-Based Flood Forecasting and Warning System
|UN, World Meteorlogical Organization
|The guide was created for flood prone communities within relatively small watersheds or sub-basins to create their own Flood Warning System where not covered by a larger automated Flood Forecasting or Warning system.
|Manual on Flood Forecasting and Warning
|World Meteorological Organization
|The Manual on Flood Forecasting and Warning provides the basic knowledge and guidance to develop or to set up an appropriate and tailored system for any case in which a flood forecasting and warning system is required. The aim is to provide a succinct but comprehensive overview of the basic knowledge and information that the relevant personnel of the National Meteorological or Hydrometeorological Services or other flood management service should require.
|Manual for Mock Flood Response Exercise with Early Warning System
|Practical Action (UK Based Agency that sources solutions and resources for problems caused by climate change and gender inequality)
|This booklet gives guidelines about mock flood exercises for flood response based on early warning systems. These guidelines have been prepared based on the experience and learning of carrying out mock flood exercises in communities for almost a decade.
|Climate Information and Early Warning Systems Communication Toolkit
|Learn to issue and package early warnings and create integrated communication strategies that support the value propposition for climate information, weather forecastst, and National HydroMeteorological Services in Africa.
|Flood Forecasting and Early Warning: a Transboundary River Basin Toolkit
|the toolkit would be of practical value to the flood forecasting community, technical experts, disaster risk managers, and policymakers for enhancing flood early warning systems, especially in transboundary river basins.
