|ADB; Osti, Rabindra
|Key lessons on managing flood risks from the Yangtze River floods in 2016 illustrate a connection between flood risk management, environmental management, and ecosystem sustainability. In the People’s Republic of China (PRC), recent flood events revealed that the majority of flood damages does not come from the main stem river but from small- to moderate-sized river sub-basins.

The paper illustrates that there is a connection between flood risk management, environmental management, and ecosystem sustainability. It also highlights the need for a flood footprint and accountability system for the whole river basin and greater involvement of the private sector in flood risk management.
