How can technology contribute to resilient flooding solutions?

The threat of flooding to our cities, towns, businesses and people is increasing year after year, but are we getting any better at protecting ourselves from this important threat?

Continuing advances in technology can help us to become better informed, better prepared and importantly more resilient, rather than reactive.

Can some communities protect themselves completely from floods, or should they focus on designing and engineering ways to lessen the impact of flooding and ensure all is in place to return to normality as quickly as possible, with minimal damage and disruption?
