Foundations for Change, Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance Phase II, Executive Summary

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...

Assessing the impacts of climate change on flood displacement risk

With so many people already affected by climate change and extreme weather events predicted to become more frequent and/or severe in many parts of the world, it is vital to establish the magnitude of future displacement risk, its drivers and what might be done about it. Whilst a number of...

Green to Blue Finance

A collaboration between the LSE Institute of Global Affairs and the LSE Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment with contributions from academics, researchers and organisations addressing the strongly interlinked climate threat and the health of the ocean.

Exploring the role of risk perception in influencing flood losses over time

What implications do societies’ risk perceptions have for flood losses? This study uses a stylized, socio-hydrological model to simulate the mutual feedbacks between human societies and flood events. It integrates hydrological modelling with cultural theory and proposes four ideal types of...

Assessment and Economic Valuation of Coastal Protection Services Provided by Mangroves in Jamaica

Jamaica, like many Small Island Developing States (SIDS) is at high risk from coastal hazards due to its exposure to tropical storms, high levels of coastal development, vulnerable coastal communities, degradation of coastal ecosystems and the predicted impacts of climate change. This...

Mitigation Matters: Policy Solutions to Reduce Local Flood Risk

Since 2000, floods have cost the United States more than $845 billion in damage to homes, businesses, and critical infrastructure. The expense of adapting to more frequent and severe storms is projected to rise over the next several decades, placing a premium on the need to take action now to...

Range-dependent thresholds for global flood early warning

Early warning systems (EWS) for river flooding are strategic tools for effective disaster risk management in many world regions. When driven by ensemble Numerical Weather Predictions (NWP), flood EWS can provide skillful streamflow forecasts beyond the monthly time scale in large river basins....

Reconnecting Solomon Islands After the Cyclone Ita Floods

ADB’s Transport Sector Flood Recovery Project helped reinstate bridge approach roads, culverts, and stream crossings and rebuilt three elevated bridges, reestablishing a seamless east–west road link on Guadalcanal and within Honiara. All works incorporated climate- and disaster-proof design.

Sustainable Land and Water Management within Xining Municipality

With a participatory and watershed-wide approach, the Xining Flood and Watershed Management Project helped China to improve social protection, build livelihood skills, and foster the sustainable use of land and water resources. From the project’s start in 2009 to the project closure in...

Final Evaluation: Building Resilient Communities in Fiji Project

This report presents the independent evaluation of the USAID funded Building Resilient Communities in Fiji (BRCF) project. The evaluation was conducted between September-October 2019 by a three-member evaluation team. The BRCF project was a three-year project (2016- 2019) worth USD$ 1,278,282,...

A framework to assess integration in flood risk management: implications for governance, policy,...

Over decades the concept of integration has been promoted to enhance alignment between policy domains, and to manage trade-offs and maximize synergies across management practices. Integrated approaches have the potential to enable better outcomes for flood risk management (FRM) and society as a...

A rapid flood risk assessment method for response operations and nonsubject‐matter‐expert...

Flood risk planning and emergency response at community levels rely on fast access to accurate inundation models that identify geographic areas, assets, and populations that may be flooded. However, limited flood modelling resources are available to support these events and activities. We present...

Climate change in Nigeria: impacts and responses

Nigeria’s climate has been changing, evident in: increases in temperature; variable rainfall; rise in sea level and flooding; drought and desertification; land degradation; more frequent extreme weather events; affected fresh water resources and loss of biodiversity (see: Elisha et al., 2017;...

Provincial Disaster Management Authority, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa: Monsoon Contingency...

The 2010 floods wreaked havoc in the province. As per the estimates of Federal Flood Commission, the combine flow of river Swat and river Kabul touched the new historical high of 400,000 cusec, which was recorded previously at 250,000 cusec in 1929. In order to respond to monsoon hazards in an...

Household disaster awareness and preparedness: Acase study of flood hazards in Asamankese in the...

Increasing disasters and their associated devastating impacts on society have called into question the capacity of countries to address disaster occurrences. Hitherto, primary disaster management institutions have addressed disaster in a piecemeal manner, commonly through the distribution of...

The global and regional impacts of climate change under representative concentration pathway...

This paper presents an evaluation of the global and regional consequences of climate change for heat extremes, water resources, river and coastal flooding, droughts, agriculture and energy use. It presents change in hazard and resource base under different rates of climate change...

An Independent Review of the 2019 Flood Events in Ontario

Ontario has a long history of taking actions to keep people and property safe from the impacts of flooding through land use planning policies and mitigative activities. The development of the modern floodplain policy in Ontario, the watershed approach, the conservation authority model, and the...

Managing muddy floods: Balancing engineered and alternative approaches

Muddy runoff from agricultural fields is widespread across Europe causing damage to properties, transport, and freshwater systems. Clean‐up costs are high and include making water fit for drinking. Mitigation against muddy flooding (MF) includes standard soil conservation and flood protection...

Modeling of inter-organizational coordination dynamics in resilience planning of infrastructure...

This paper proposes and tests a multilayer framework for simulating the network dynamics of inter-organizational coordination among interdependent infrastructure systems (IISs) in resilience planning. Inter-organizational coordination among IISs (such as transportation, flood control, and...

Webinar: PERC for Wildfires

Zurich Insurance has collaborated with ICLR, ISET International and International Institute of Applied System Analysis to study how wildfire hazards have turned into community disasters in Alberta, Canada; California, United States; and Tasmania, Australia. Zurich has developed a methodology...
