13th International Conference On Urban Drainage (13th ICUD) 2014

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Malaysia is an emerging economy that is striving to achieve developed status by 2020. Like many countries in the tropics, we are prone to flash floods affecting numerous parts of the country.

The recently presented Malaysian Second Economic Stimulus Package promises a further allocation of funds for implementation of additional flood mitigation projects. However, having the funding is just the beginning – knowing and understanding which technologies are best to maximise effectiveness requires our practitioners to be well versed in all the latest developments.

The state of having to constantly be on the alert and the experience of dealing with this potential problem has shaped Malaysia into a country that is fast gaining knowledge and skills in the management of flash floods. Hosting the 13th ICUD as such in Malaysia, would be an ideal move whereby participants can gain much insight from a location that deals with the problem not only fi­rst hand but also often enough.
