The International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR) was announced by the General Assembly of the UN in 1987, to run from 1990 to 2000, with a basic objective to reduce human life losses and damages resulting from flood events. Water can be regarded as the most important element in natural disasters, because it plays the main role in one third of all deaths, injuries and material losses resulting from natural disasters. Events of wide-ranging significance rarely have a single cause. Flooding results from a complex combination of human activities and natural events, where coincidence of conditions, circumstances and factors is an important but complicating consideration. Leavesley et al.  published proceedings focused on disastrous floods.
