About the book

This book presents the latest research efforts in mitigating flood disaster impact through resilience building and enhancement. These works are based on the premise that water-related disasters can’t be totally prevented. So, the emphasis of these studies is placed on how flood damage can be minimized and the recovery can be facilitated by social-ecological resilience. It aims at a paradigm shift in flood management by promoting explicit consideration of resilience in both policymaking, plan formulation and flood defense systems design as well. It includes easy-to-understand explanations of basic terminologies and concepts, flood impact assessment, resilience index study, various approaches for resilience building and case studies of ecosystem-based disaster reduction through resilience enhancement. It serves as a good reference for students and a guide book for professionals. It may also influence policy and plan makers and the general public by highlighting innovative thinking and new pathways towards achieving sustainable development goals.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
