In pursuit of resilience

Designing, implementing and monitoring policies and programmes for sustainable development is particularly challenging in fragile and conflict-affected contexts. Against this underlying fragility, regional to global threats including climate change, geopolitical instability, pandemics and...

Climate-related extreme weather events and COVID-19

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented humanitarian crisis which intersects with the global climate emergency. Climate change has not stopped in the midst of the pandemic’s global spread. In fact, COVID-19 is directly affecting and increasing the needs of persons affected by...

2020 State of Flood Report

In the past four years, flood-related losses from a string of catastrophic events - including 2017’s terrible trio of hurricanes, Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and the Mississippi River floods in 2019 - have shown that insurance plays a vital role in helping individuals, businesses, and communities...

Towards Coordinated Self-organization: An actor-centered framework for the design of Disaster...

Traditionally, disaster management information systems have been designed to facilitate communication and coordination along stable hierarchical lines and roles. However, to support coordination in disaster response, disaster management information systems need to cater for the emerging roles,...

An evaluation of availability and adequacy of Multi-Hazard Early Warning Systems in Asian...

Early warning systems are widely considered as one of the more important aspects to reduce the impacts and consequences that hazardous natural events pose to societies. Similar to the other terms related to disaster risk reduction, this concept has evolved over time to eventually result in a...

People-Centered Early Warning Systems in China: A Bibliometric Analysis of Policy Documents

People-Centred Early Warning Systems (PCEWSs) is thought to be low-cost but effective, however, existing studies fail to discuss the basic characteristics of PCEWSs, how a PCEWSs should be built, and the extensible applications of PCEWSs. This study aims for making a significant contribution to...

Mapping the effectiveness of nature‐based solutions for climate change adaptation

Nature‐based solutions (NbS) to climate change currently have considerable political traction. However, national intentions to deploy NbS have yet to be fully translated into evidence‐based targets and action on the ground. To enable NbS policy and practice to be better informed by science, we...

Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance Phase II - Lessons from Year 2

Phase II of the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance was launched in July 2018. The first year largely focused on setting up the internal systems and structures to achieve our broader objectives. Combining investment in these systems and structures with leveraging Phase I successes is already leading...

Enhancing resilience of systems to individual and systemic risk: steps toward an integrative...

Individual events can trigger systemic risks in many complex systems, from natural to man-made. Yet, analysts are still usually treating these two types of risks separately. We suggest that, rather, individual risks and systemic risks represent two ends of a continuum and therefore should not be...

The influence of tailored risk communication on individual adaptive behaviour

Hydro-meteorological hazards annually lead to considerable economic losses worldwide. Property level flood risk adaptation (PLFRA) measures have shown to decrease potential damages by floods and other hazards. However, such measures are often implemented inadequately, frequently because of...

Urban Water Governance and Learning—Time for More Systemic Approaches?

Social learning, especially triple-loop social learning involving institutional and governance changes, has great potential to address urban water issues such as flooding, drought, and pollution.
