1. IFNet Action Report 2006 has been released
In order to introduce activities of IFNet, and to identify good flood damage mitigation actions and lessons learned and disseminate these to promote awareness of flood damage, 13 reports in response from Asia, Europe, Africa and North America are carried in the IFNet Action Report 2006. We can learn quite a lot from the experience of other areas and people, and we hope that such knowledge will be used to improve actions being taken in your area or be incorporated into flood management measures newly developed in the future.
