Publication Overview/Description

Urban riverine flooding can be worsened by local urban processes and activities that cause river flow
obstruction and pollution. This case study presents the flood mitigation efforts by Marikina City’s local
authority and people, with a special focus on how the physical restoration of the riverbanks and solid waste clean-up contributed to flood disaster mitigation.
