SafeLevee webinar on failure databases

Dear colleagues,

Over the last 5 years the SAFElevee project team at TU Delft has investigated levee failures and has set up an open-access database (the international levee performance database – ILPD) with over 1500 levee failure and performance cases.

You are warmly invited to attend a webinar on the SafeLevee project and ILPD database.
The event will be held on Friday 25th September from 13.30 – 15.30 CEST, and the program outline is as follows (further details will be made available at a later stage).

Block 1: SAFElevee, the international levee performance database and its use for levee managers

  • Introduction to the program, SAFElevee project and International Levee Performance Database
  • The use of levee performance information for levee managers (design, crisis management etc.) – 4 short videos on this theme have been prepared by HKV consultants and will be shown
  • Open discussion on use by levee managers with contributions from Rijkswaterstaat and other levee managers and participants.


Block 2: International collaboration in collecting, sharing and analysing levee failures

  • Short Introduction (Bas Jonkman, TU Delft)
  • Presentations by other similar database initiatives (EDF, France and others)
  • Panel and open discussion on future use and sharing of levee failure and performance data

Please confirm your attendance by emailing, and feel free to share with others you think may be interested. More details will be provided to attendees prior to the event, including a detailed agenda and access details.
