Title: NATO advanced study institute on defence from floods and floodplain management, Budapest, Hungary, April 1994
Author: John Gardiner
Document Type: Monograph
The declared purpose of NATO ASIs is to promote the dissemination of scientific knowledge, to impart experience and to foster professional contacts. This Budapest event, held at Vituki Institute, attracted senior figures from UNESCO, Europe, the USA and Japan, and clearly achieved the stated purpose of the ASI, providing most informative and stimulating lectures and discussion periods. The NRA derives many benefits from the event and from the further contacts made as a result of sharing experiences on the course. The UK delegates were Chris Haggett and David Pellymounter (NRA:Yorkshire and Northumbria Region), both from Flood Defence, Dr. Richard Hey (UEA) and myself (lecturer and one of the four organisers). We contributed greatly to the event, and provided three of the six videos shown. This ASI followed a similar event "Coping with Floods" held in Sicily in 1992, to which I was an invited Lecturer, chairing a half-day session and giving two papers which introduced the theme of Floodplain Management.
