FloodRISE PI Brett Sanders joined leading international experts on flood modeling for the 4th International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) Congress in Liege, Belgium from July 27-29, 2016 to discuss sustainable hydraulics in an era of global change. His keynote lecture, “Co-development of coastal flood models: Making the leap from expert analysis to decision-support,” put forward fresh ideas from the FloodRISE project about the value of bringing together different forms of knowledge in the process of designing flood risk maps. Given promising insights from the project, Dr. Sanders’ presentation demonstrated actionable methods for and tangible outcomes from the co-production of flood risk maps in southern California and Baja California.
