Best practices in flood disaster management and lessons to be learned from Thailand’s flood disaster: what countries facing flood crisis must know

Flood crisis across Asia Pacific, Middle East, Europe and the region continue to create maximum challenges. As such, it is pertinent to focus on speedier response and immediately to draw reference and lesson learned from Thailand flood disaster that took place from July 2011 to January 2012. It was Thailand’s worst floods in more than 50 years. The teams of Thailand’s faculty of flood experts have met regularly to discuss responses to flood crisis including finding new solution towards flood relief efforts, repairing flood-damaged property as well as future flood protection strategy.

Thailand’s flood disaster, lasting for 6 months that killed over 800 people and left millions homeless or displaced, with over three quarters of Thailand's provinces were declared flood disaster zones and the World Bank estimated that the economic loss exceeded US$45 billion, is the best case study for lessons to be learned. Thailand's government was unprepared for the longevity and severity of the floods, and many communities felt that the Flood Response Operation Center, which was established to coordinate emergency response and provide regular communications to the public, was in adequate. These are good example for lessons to be learned in order to ensure future flooding will have minimal impact. The essence is to make improvement to community and stakeholder participation in flood recovery, reconstruction and mitigation efforts as well as to encourage projects that build communities' resilience to large-scale floods.
