Abstract:A decision support system (DSS) for the selection of a suitable
combination of flood control and ecosystem upgrading measures was
developed. This was achieved by carefully selecting the most appropriate
model environment for the DSS. The hydrological, hydraulic and socioeconomic
models within the DSS are constructed in a consistent way, taking
into account the project objectives, characteristics of the measures, spatial and
temporal scales and future scenarios. The developed DSS was applied to the
Red River basin in Vietnam and China to evaluate a number of measures. This
reveals that some measures may decrease the flood damage, but may also
result in a decrease in total income and hence total revenues. The described
results are an illustration of how measures can be selected in the DSS. More
data collection and model calibration and validation are needed before
employing the DSS for real flood management.
