Abstract
    Related to natural hazards and, in particular, floods, the term 'risk' is defined in numerous ways and is often confused with the term 'disaster'. This article describes the Flemish flood risk methodology as an approach to tackle flood risks, which are defined as combinations of hazards and vulnerabilities. Furthermore, the relationship between the Flemish flood methodology and the integrated approach (economic damage, human health, ecology and cultural heritage) from the EU Floods Directive, is given. Finally, the concept of the flood risk management cycle and its components is compared with the management of flood disasters.
