The Green Climate Fund: Recommendations for Meeting Climate Change Adaptation Needs

The Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance (ZFRA) is an alliance of nine organizations including international NGOs, the private sector and research organizations, with a shared vision that floods have no impact on people and community's ability to thrive. A key objective of ZFRA is increased and...

Technical Inputs to Green Climate Fund Water Sector Guidance Consultations

This is the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance's contribution for the Green Climate Fund (GFC)'s technical consultations for the water section. It urges consideration of best practices around building flood resilience, including incorporating ways to measure flood resilience and increasing...

Evaluating natural infrastructure for flood management within the watersheds of selected global...

Cities are dependent on their upstream watersheds for storage and gradual release of water into river systems. These watersheds act as important flood mitigation infrastructure, providing an essential ecosystem service. In this paper we use metrics from the WaterWorld model to examine the flood...

Living with beavers

Follow farmer Chris Jones and the Cornwall Wildlife Trust team as they travel to Bavaria, Germany to meet farmers and local residents living alongside beavers fifty years after they were reintroduced there. A film by Nina Constable.

Rainfall and citizen science

There are few historical records of floods & landslides in the Rímac river watershed in terms of hydrometeorological variables with enough spatial and temporal accuracy. Is is a strong limitation to understand the relationship between precipitation and the activation of a ravine. It also limits...

Disasters: Deconstructed Podcast: Gender

In this episode of Disasters: Deconstructed Podcast we are talking to Sarah Brown, Alison Sneddon and Mirianna Budimir from Practical Action about their work on gender and disasters. Why is it problematic when women and girls are treated as generically vulnerable? How can a binary narrative of...

Potential Linkages Between Social Capital, Flood Risk Perceptions, and Self-Efficacy

A growing focus is being placed on both individuals and communities to adapt to flooding as part of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030. Adaptation to flooding requires sufficient social capital (linkages between members of society), risk perceptions (understanding of...

Communicating complex forecasts: an analysis of the approach in Nepal's flood early warning system

Early warning systems have the potential to save lives and improve resilience. However, barriers and challenges remain in disseminating and communicating early warning information to institutional decision-makers, community members and individuals at risk, including unequal access, insufficient...

Bridging the divide

This brief presents lessons drawn from a Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance (ZFRA) Post Event Review Capability (PERC) study of the 2019 Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth impacts in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi. Based on over 100 key informant interviews and background research, the study...

Learning from 2019 Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth: Executive Summary

This summary is based on a Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance (the Alliance) Post Event Review Capability (PERC) study analyzing the 2019 Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth impacts in Malawi, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe. The study was developed by the Institute for Social and Environmental Transition –...

Learning from Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth to Strengthen Early Warning Systems in Mozambique

This brief presents a series of resilience lessons from Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth based on key informant interviews and background research, and highlights opportunities strengthen Early Warning Systems in Mozambique. This product is accompanied by several other similar break out products...

Learning from Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth to Inform Long-term Disaster Risk Reduction...

This brief presents a series of resilience lessons from Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth based on key informant interviews and background research, and highlights opportunities to inform long-term Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) programming in Mozambique. This product is accompanied by several...

Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance

Floods affect more people globally than any other type of natural hazard. In the last ten years alone, floods have affected over 734 million people. Moreover, as a result of climate change, both the number of floods and their impact on affected communities are expected to increase...

Resources Radio: Managing Flood Risk under Climate Change

In this episode of the Resource Radio pod cast, host Kristin Hayes talks with Carolyn Kousky, an RFF university fellow as well as the executive director at the Wharton Risk Management and Decision Processes Center at the University of Pennsylvania. An expert in disaster insurance markets, Kousky...

Floodplains: a natural system to preserve and restore

Floodplains are part of Europe’s natural capital, covering 7 % of the continent's area and up to 30 % of its terrestrial Natura 2000 site area. Studies have shown that 70-90 % of floodplains have been environmentally degraded. The objective of this work is to showcase that natural floodplains...

The Global Flood Protection Benefits of Mangroves

Coastal flood risks are rising rapidly. We provide high resolution estimates of the economic value of mangroves forests for flood risk reduction every 20 km worldwide. We develop a probabilistic, process-based valuation of the effects of mangroves on averting damages to people and property. We...

Flood survivors’ perspectives on vulnerability reduction to floods in Mbire district, Zimbabwe

Disasters result from the interactions of hazards and vulnerability conditions. Considering the perspectives of survivors of a disaster event is critical for reducing the progression of vulnerability conditions. The Mbire community in Zimbabwe is facing increasing threats from recurring high- and...

A Flood Damage Allowance Framework for Coastal Protection With Deep Uncertainty in Sea Level Rise

Analyses of how Antarctica will respond to a warming planet embody large uncertainties that increase with time. As such, future projections of sea level rise are strongly dependent upon expert judgment about how much and how quickly Antarctica will melt. This uncertainty complicates any decisions...

Count every drop: every drop counts

Fresh water is vital for life. On average, a human being cannot survive more than three days without it. Water is essential for the production of our food, virtually all of our goods and services and for the environment. The world faces increasing challenges posed by water stress, floods...

The Affordability of Flood Risk Property‐Level Adaptation Measures

The affordability of property‐level adaptation measures against flooding is crucial due to the movement toward integrated flood risk management, which requires the individuals threatened by flooding to actively manage flooding. It is surprising to find that affordability is not often discussed,...
