—This paper describes the issues relating to the role
of the delivery system provided by the government to the flood
victims in Malaysia, pre-disaster, during and post-disaster
caused by flooding. Presently, the delivery system in flood
management was predominantly an official strategy based on a
technology centered approach emphasizing the application of
new technologies in flood control, forecasting, warning and
evacuation systems. In Malaysia, the National Security Council
(MKN) has responsibility for controlling the national disaster
management system and this organisation will provide an
effective relief machinery for recovery following flooding
disaster. Further to that, this paper will attempt to describe the
type of flood delivery system that has been used in Malaysia and
to draw comparisons with delivery systems in other countries.
