Flooding is a significant natural hazard in many areas around the world, including the UK and the Netherlands. Flood risk is a combination of hazard with exposure and vulnerability to the flood, which depend on various socio-economic, cultural, historical and political factors. Since these factors vary significantly around the world, flood management is location-specific. There are, however, opportunities to learn from successful approaches and adapt flood management to reduce flood risk in the Anthropocene.
