Natural Flood Management: A restatement of the Natural Science Evidence

Title variants
Languages of publication
Flood events often have severe socio-economic impacts, such as loss of lives and livelihoods, food, water and energy scarcity, and adverse impacts on human health and the environment. As far as feasible, human interference into the processes of nature should be reversed, compensated and, in the future, prevented. This study explores the possible solutions for the drainage system to ensure peak performance that might be adopted in España Boulevard, Manila. It aims to describe the wastewater management system to prevent and protect the adverse impact of flood events on human health and safety, on valuable goods and property, and on the aquatic and terrestrial environment.
