1 Collaborative Research on Flood Resilience in Urban Areas The CORFU Project University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Philippe GOURBESVILLE Jelena BATICA Funded by the European Commission  7 th Framework Programme 

2 Outline of CORFU project University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia IntroductionOverview of WPs: WP0 WP1 WP2 WP3 WP4 WP5 WP6Outcomes from CORFU

3 What? CORFU project (www.corfu-fp7.eu) is a part of Seventh Framework Program FP7 (cordis.europa.eu/fp7/home) that supports all types of research activities carried out by different research bodies in trans-national cooperation and aims to gain or consolidate leadership in key scientific and technology areas Why? To make possible for European and Asian partners to learn from each other through cooperative investigation, development, implementation and dissemination of short to medium term strategies. That will enable more methodically managing consequences of urban flooding in the future University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

4 Who? CORFU is coordinated within a robust organizational framework that supports collaboration, oversees science and society issues, promotes gender equality, ensures the financial viability of the entire project and ensures good internal and external communication Members of executive board of CORFU project are: Slobodan Djordjevic, Exeter university, United Kingdom Ole Mark, DHI, Denmark Philippe Gourbesville, University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France Erik Pasche, Hamburg University, Germany University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

With its actions, Corfu project covers Europe and Asian cities: Barcelona in Spain Beijing in China Dhaka in Bangladesh Hamburg in Germany Mumbai in India Nice in France Songdo and Seoul in Korea Taipei in Taiwan University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

8 University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU Hamburg, Germany Case Studies

9 Work packages presentation Collaborative research within CORFU is structured in seven Work Packages (WPs), which are further split into a number of tasks that are strongly interconnected. The idea and the overall scientific and technical objectives of the WPs can be summarized as follows: WP0 – Synergies – Exeter University, UK WP1 – Drivers – Hamburg University, Germany WP2 – Flood Modeling – DHI, Denmark WP3 – Impacts – Exeter University, UK WP4 – Flood defense strategies – University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France WP5 – Dissemination – Exeter University, UK WP6 – Coordination – Exeter University, UK University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

10 WP0 – Synergies – Exeter University, UK WP0 will consider synergies and governance The objective will be to establish and maintain links with recently completed and ongoing major national and EU research projects related to urban flooding, with the view of enabling smooth acceptance and further enhancement of methodologies developed in these projects, aiming at a better use of resources and avoiding duplication of work University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

11 WP1 – Drivers – Hamburg University, Germany WP1 will look at drivers that impact on urban flooding The objective will be to determine the interactions between economic and urban growth, societal trends and the urban structure, which will serve as the basis for the development of a DPSIR (drivers-pressures-state-impact-response) logical framework University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

12 DPSIR (drivers-pressures-state-impact-response) logical framework University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU DPSIR Polices and targets

13 WP2 – Flood Modeling – DHI, Denmark WP2 objective will be to evaluate and improve methodologies and tools designed for off-line and real-time flood hazard assessment based on urban flood modeling Tools will be developed in order to identify regular procedures for calibration of urban flood models at different scales regarding wider availability of weather radars and on-line rain gauges, increase in computer speed and possibilities for coupling of runoff-sewer-river hydrologic and hydraulic models University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

14 WP3 – Impacts – Exeter University, UK WP3 will improve, extend and integrate modern methods for flood impact assessment The aim will be to develop a complete and flexible framework that will join together different methodologies for evaluation of all types of damage. Evaluation of health problems will be taken to a higher level by a combination of hydraulic modeling of floods and quantitative microbial risk assessment. WP3 will include a wide range of possible impacts and interactions of different drivers University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

15 WP4 – Flood defense strategies – University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France WP4 will assess and improve existing flood risk management strategies related to: Mitigation – planning and prevention for the minimization of flood risk Preparedness – management during flood events including early warning systems Response – emergency protocols and crisis management and measures to be taken after a flood event, including evaluation of damages Recovery – recovery measures and the procedures that allow learning from experience University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

16 WP4 will develop new efficient medium – to long-term flood risk strategies, and provide adequate measures for improved flood management at relevant levels The target regions are developed and developing cities in India, Bangladesh, Korea and China primarily Strategy will be developed using following: Developed city in developing country Developed city in developed country Developing city in developing country Developing city in developed country Enhance flood insurance schemes in case study areas University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

17 The research within CORFU project will be associated with following case studies: Barcelona in Spain Beijing in China Dhaka in Bangladesh Hamburg in Germany Mumbai in India Nice in France Songdo and Seoul in South Korea Taipei in Taiwan In order to set a guideline for improving resilience in urban areas the existing flood strategies from this case studies will be recommended along with new approaches in order to have a better strategy implementations University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

18 University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia WP5 – Dissemination – Exeter University, UK WP5 will disseminate new approaches and support exploitation of opportunities at local, national and international levels Aim will be to stimulate a ‘flood resilience’ culture through awareness, intensifying proposed strategies and full adoption of CORFU tools Propagation of new approaches will be done through engaging policy makers, especially in the CORFU study areas, to share best practice in flood resilient design and planning enabling policy decision making to be positively influenced by new urban flood risk management principles Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

19 University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia WP6 – Coordination – Exeter University, UK WP6 will co-ordinate the project within a managerial framework that supports collaboration, oversees science and society issues, promotes gender equality, ensures the financial viability of the entire project and ensures good internal and external communication CORFU project management will therefore be fully compliant with FP7 guidelines and principles Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

20 University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU

21 Generation of updated city sewer flood models, developed means in order to quantify flood impact, analysis the effect of changing social, economic and environmental effects on city flood risk, analysis of the effect of mitigation and resilience measures Classification and sharing best practice on mitigation and resilience measures, inculcating a flood resilience mentality in key stakeholders Following the good practices – exchange ideas and information on defense strategies related to the areas of flood resilience and flood risk management the need for a project like CORFU became essential University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU Outcomes from CORFU project

22 In order to gather under same frame all necessary actions, polices, strategies and recommendations this project will engage all tools to create new strategies for flood resilience in urban areas Direct support to policy developments and realization with contribution of policy- makers and stakeholders in research consortium and involvement of scientists in policy discussions On international level, European inputs are fully applicable to carry out international and multidisciplinary research Very important is strong need for strengthening the efficient transfer of research knowledge to policy-makers with the perspective of reducing uncertainties of predictive scenarios for better decision-making at policy level University of Nice – Sophia Antipolis / Polytech’Nice-Sophia Collaborative Research of Flood resilience in Urban Areas – CORFU Outcomes from CORFU project
