The catastrophic floods of 2005 have demonstrated that, particularly for cultural property protection which is not considered as a first line of defence in such situations, appropriate precautionary measures can greatly help to mitigate damage to property should such an incident occur. This issue of PCP Forum looks at natural disasters in the 19th century, sheds light on current and future preventive measures to protect against floods, and on the work undertaken when floods actually strike.
