  • Natural disaster reduction and environmental management : a geomorphologist’s view
  • Environmental management ; Geomorphology ; Inter-disciplinary approach ; Natural hazards ; Preventive measure ; Risk management ; Society-environment relationship ; Sustainable development
  • Disaster reduction through environmental management is a complex issue that requires interdisciplinary applied research related to the natural environment as well as to the socio-economic situation of the endangered societies. In fact
  • , sustainability is at stake. For the implementation of adequate protection measures, ranging from «hard» engineering structures to «soft» management improvements, optimal cooperation between the various sectors of the communities concerned is essential. This multi
  • -sectoral approach should lead up to a master-plan for long term regional management and a disaster scenario specifying tasks and responsibilities of organizations and individuals in case of an emergency situation. Apart from natural disasters, technical

  • Environmental sustainability : from environmental valuation to the sustainability gap
  • Bibliography ; Economic value ; Environment ; Environmental management ; Indicator ; Society-environment relationship ; Sustainable development ; The 1990's ; The 2000's
  • This paper reflects on the extensive literature on environmental sustainability that has been produced over the last 2 decades, and proposes a new approach for environmental policy that goes beyond the cost-benefit analysis. This approach combines
  • the Safe Minimum Standard approach, which was proposed many years ago, with the concepts of environmental functions and ecosystem goods and services, which have been developed much more recently. It is shown that this approach provides the basis
  • for a robust calculation of sustainability across different environmental themes, following which a ‘sustainability gap’, showing the extent to which this standard is not being met, may be computed. This gap may be expressed in both physical and monetary terms

  • Application of the irrigation land environmental evaluation tool for flood irrigation management and evaluation of water use
  • Applied hydrology ; Cultivated land ; Experimental catchment ; Flood ; Irrigation ; Navarra ; Spain ; Water management ; Water needs ; Water resources ; Watershed
  • The aim of this study is to compare the water use efficiency before (2001) and after (2002–2008) implementation of a new irrigation management plan in an area operating with traditional methods. To this end, annual water balances were carried out
  • in irrigation management (i. assignment of irrigation allowances, ii. on-demand flood irrigation system, and iii. creation of water consumption accounts). The changes in irrigation management contributed to a better adjustment between water consumption and net

  • Structural measures play an important role in flood risk management. Their usage enables us to manage a certain part of flood risk. Their main purpose is to reduce flood hazard on flood-prone areas that have been inhabited or used for different
  • human activities. The paper presents some of most common structural measures which serve for flash flood protection, the basic principle of operating, its advantages and disadvantages, as well as their environmental impact. - (IKR)
