The focus on private land of this special issue points at a “policy delivery gap” (Moss, 2008) and the instruments by which to overcome it. Whereas the technical and hydrological functions of land in flood risk management are relatively well known, there remain considerable gaps in the understanding of how to mobilise the required land resources and overcome, respectively prevent, flood-related conflicts in land use (Edelenbos et al., 2013; Morris et al., 2016). As most studies focus on case and context specific solutions, gaining a more comprehensive and generic understanding of the different options and mechanisms of leveraging land for floods is an important task for research and policy practice alike. This cross-disciplinary edited collection brings together research from the natural, technical, legal and social sciences to provide an encompassing instrumental perspective of mobilising land in the context of flood risk management. The core aim of this volume is to explore solutions to this pertinent issue in the broadening policy paradigm.
