Programme on flood management

The Global Water Partnership (GWP) and World Metrological Organization’s (WMO) Associated Programme on Flood Management (APFM) works with over 30 expert partner organisations worldwide. The programme support countries in the implementation of Integrated Flood Management (IFM) within the overall framework of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) to maximize net benefits from the use of their floodplains and minimize loss of life and livelihoods.

Through a HelpDesk, the APFM provides guidance material and builds capacities to help countries advance in the development of the IFM approach in practice. A focus is the support to project preparation for the implementation of integrated flood management approaches.
