Causal Effect of Impervious Cover on Annual Flood Magnitude for the United States

Despite consensus that impervious surfaces increase flooding, the magnitude of the increase remains uncertain. This uncertainty largely stems from the challenge of isolating the effect of changes in impervious cover separate from other factors that also affect flooding. To control for these...

Characterization of hydro-meteorological drought in Nepal Himalaya: A case of Karnali River Basin

Himalayan river basin is marked by a complex topography with limited observational data. In the context of increasing extreme events, this study aims to characterize drought events in the Karnali River Basin (KRB). Firstly, historical data for 34-years (1981–2014) from ten different stations were...

Climate change adaptation and resilience and water, sanitation and hygiene: links between SDG 13...

Climate change is water change. Climate change is often discussed in terms of carbon emissions, but people feel the impacts largely through water. Rising temperatures mean increasingly severe floods, droughts and unpredictable weather patterns across the world, damaging water supplies and...

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...

Critical infrastructure and flood resilience: Cascading effects beyond water

Critical infrastructure and cascading effects are analyzed in this article as cross‐cutting topics in flood risk and resilience. A concept is developed for integrating aspects of disaster risk, hazard, vulnerability and resilience with critical infrastructure analytic components such as...

Dealing with the deluge: urban water management in a changing climate

Sustainable drainage systems, or SuDS, use natural environmental processes to help slow, store and clean water. These processes are better for the environment and often cost less than traditional systems too. SuDS provide benefits for communities and nature, increasing our resilience to climate...

Deforestation and Increased Flooding of the Upper Amazon

El uso de la tierra y/o los fenómenos naturales están produciendo cambios en el balance de los recursos hidricos en la Amazonía.

Development and Climate Change in the Mekong Region

In the countries of the Mekong Region: Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, environmental sustainability continues to be a major concern. As rapid economic growth and increased regional economic integration continues apace, environmental degradation is taking a huge toll on...

Disaster risk profile and existing legal framework of Nepal: floods and landslides

Flooding and landslides usually take place in the rainy season, which has a greater effect on the loss of property, structures, and lives of people. They cause considerable loss of lives, crops, lands, and infrastructure every year. The major causes of floods and landslides in Nepal are adverse...
