Submission to Call for Evidence on Flooding and Coastal Erosion by Defra

In July 2019 the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) launched a call for evidence to seek guidance on policy direction to prepare the UK for flooding and coastal erosion. This paper summarises the submission to this inquiry by Swenja Surminski, Viktor Roezer, Sara...

Unlocking the potential for transformative climate adaptation in cities

Cities are increasingly integrating climate adaptation priorities into development policies and plans. However, there remains a gap in understanding how incremental urban adaptation solutions can lead to more transformative change over the long term. This paper systematically reviews...

Cost–benefit analysis of flood‐zoning policies: A review of current practice

One commonly proposed method to limit flood risk is land‐use or zoning policies which regulates construction in high‐risk areas, in order to reduce economic exposure and its vulnerability to flood events. Although such zoning regulations can be effective in limiting trends in flood risk, they...

The Role of Green Infrastructure in Managing Urban Flood

There is increasing recognition of the potential of natural ecosystems to provide valuable services to urban areas. These ecosystem services may include flood control, water purification, slope stabilization, and erosion prevention. In addition, ecosystems may help to reduce urban temperatures,...

Taking stock of community-based flood risk management in Malawi: different stakeholders,...

Current flood risk strategies in Malawi are characterized by community-based flood risk management (CB-FRM), even though studies explicitly documenting evidence of successful CB-FRM remain limited. This paper investigates the realities and challenges of CB-FRM as seen through a lens of different...

Water, Climate and Development Programme: 10 stories of impact

This report brings together 10 stories of impact from the Water, Climate and Development Programme launched by GWP in 2011, including projects focused on flood resilience.

Floods in the Mekong River basin

The review summarises flood characteristics and impacts they cause to the communities in different places in the Mekong river basin through the years of existing records with increasing negative impacts from rapid pace of economic development to meet the need for increasing demography and...

The Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate

This special report assesses new knowledge since the IPCC 5th Assessment Report (AR5) and the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C (SR1.5) on how the ocean and cryosphere have and are expected to change with ongoing global warming, the risks and opportunities these changes bring to...

Characterising Local Knowledge across the Flood Risk Management Cycle: A Case Study of Southern...

People possess a creative set of strategies based on their local knowledge (LK) that allow them to stay in flood-prone areas. Stakeholders involved with local level flood risk management (FRM) often overlook and underutilise this LK. There is thus an increasing need for its identification,...

Surging Waters: Science empowering communities in the face of flooding

From devastating monsoons to sea level rise, extreme weather is taking its toll across the globe. Surging Waters looks at flooding in the United States and demonstrates how science is supporting flood management, as well as furthering the solutions needed to mitigate flood impacts on people...

Assessing time, cost and quality trade-offs in forecast-based action for floods

Forecast-based actions are increasingly receiving attention in flood risk management. However, uncertainties and constraints in forecast skill highlight the need to carefully assess the costs and benefits of the actions in relation to the limitations of forecast information. Forecast skill...

Innovative Approaches for Flood Risk Assessment

New hydro-meteorological forecast and risk management products by IMPREX improve the operational efficiency of European flood management and help mitigate the vulnerability to hydro-meteorological extremes.

Coastal Flood Resilience Design Guidelines

The Coastal Flood Resilience Design Guidelines document is a resource to help Boston property owners and developers make informed, forward-looking decisions about flood protection for existing buildings and new construction.

Advancing Coastal Risk Reduction Science and Implementation by Accounting for Climate,...

Climate change and population growth are degrading coastal ecosystems and increasing risks to communities and infrastructure. Reliance on seawalls and other types of hardened shorelines is unsustainable in an era of rising seas, given the costs to build and maintain these structures and their...

Probabilistic Approaches for Improved Flood Risk Assessment and Management under consideration of...

Probabilistic methods quantify and visualize uncertainties by providing results as a set of potential values with their corresponding probability of occurrence. The research project IMPREX shows how the implementation of the Floods Directive could benefit from the use of probabilistic...

The importance of including compound events in the implementation of the Floods Directive

The phenomenon known as compound flooding, caused by the coincident occurrence of multiple flood drivers such as high precipitation events, storm surges or high runoff rates, has caused some of the most destructive flooding in Europe. To date, however, the compounding nature of multiple...

Linking financial services and social protection for resilience: lessons from Kenya

Climate-related shocks and stresses threaten people and communities around the world, compounding existing poverty and vulnerability and undermining long-term development. National and international actors are searching for new and better ways to help people deal with increasing climate risks...

Health vulnerability to flood-induced risks of households in flood-prone informal settlements in...

Floods have serious consequences on community well-being and health. This study was intended to address the health vulnerability of households in flood prone informal settlements in the coastal city of Mombasa in Kenya and their adaptation measures. Mombasa City has a history of floods, in the...

When Rivers Rise: How AI is helping predict floods

A team of engineers from Google's Crisis Response team is using machine learning to develop a more accurate and reliable flood forecasting system for countries that need it most.
