Title Flash flood and landslide disasters in the Philippines: reducing vulnerability and improving community resilience Creator Ollet, Edgardo Relation University of Newcastle Research Higher Degree Thesis Resource Type thesis Date Description Masters Research - Master of Science Description Recent flash floods and landslides in the Philippines have caused many fatalities, loss of livelihoods; destroyed infrastructures, damaged natural resources and displaced several communities.
A flood is an accumulation or an overflow of an expanse of water that covers or inundates land that is usually dry.
Flood control methods are used to reduce or prevent the detrimental effects of flood waters. Floods are caused by many factors or a combination of any of these generally prolonged heavy rainfall locally concentrated or throughout a catchment area , highly accelerated snowmelt , severe winds over water, unusual high tides, tsunamis , or failure of dams, levees , retention ponds , or other structures that retained the water. Flooding can be exacerbated by increased amounts of impervious surface or by other natural hazards such as wildfires, which reduce the supply of vegetation that can absorb rainfall. Periodic floods occur on many rivers, forming a surrounding region known as the flood plain. During times of rain, some of the water is retained in ponds or soil, some is absorbed by grass and vegetation, some evaporates, and the rest travels over the land as surface runoff. Floods occur when ponds, lakes, riverbeds, soil, and vegetation cannot absorb all the water.
So given the above mentioned objectives, the project will offer an opportunity for collective problem solving, knowledge sharing, social exchange and community-wide participation at local and global scale. This will lead to an insight into the information and preparedness requirements of local communities and the development of solutions adapted to the social realities. Secondly, it will lead to a closer cooperation and coordination for flood forecasting and warning services of public institutions based on user needs. Thirdly, based on the flood event studies, and including consultations with affected communities and other recipients of flood warnings, improved technical means of detecting the areas at imminent risk and warning more effectively, will be developed. Technically the project will focus on developing a collaborative platform that will link citizen, public authorities and other stakeholders and on enabling the public to be warned en masse so that actions can be taken to reduce the adverse effects of the flood.

A simple definition of flooding is: water where it is not wanted. Another, more comprehensive definition of a flood is:. A general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation of normally dry land areas from overflow of inland or tidal waters from the unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source [i]. Floods can have both positive and negative impacts. They can bring welcome relief for people and ecosystems suffering from prolonged drought, but also are estimated to be the most costly natural disaster. Flooding occurs most commonly from heavy rainfall when natural watercourses do not have the capacity to manage excess water. However, floods are not always caused by heavy rainfall.

Floods can happen almost anywhere. They can cover an area with just a few inches of water or they can bring enough water to cover the roof of a house. Floods can be dangerous for communities, lasting days, weeks or sometimes even longer.
PDF | Flooding is considered one of the most widespread of climatic hazards that poses Health Effects of Flood Disasters in the Philippines.
Flooding is experienced all over the globe and for a variety of reasons — but why exactly does flooding occur? There are several human causes of flooding, including poorly designed infrastructure. There are also natural reasons flooding happens. Here are eight of the most common causes of flooding, both natural and human-induced.

Flood risk management seeks to reduce the risk from flood events to the people who are located in floodprone areas. As indicated in earlier chapters, there is some level of risk to all locations within the floodplain.
