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.
