Platzer, Olivier (author)
This thesis evaluates flood insurance solutions for the Netherlands, focusing on the repercussions of primary flood defence failures. Recognizing the amplified need for a solid safety system due to climate change, the study uses a comprehensive approach, including literature review, expert opinion, and numerical modelling, to assess existing...

The report tackles Galveston's flooding challenges, which are currently in development with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) ring barrier. However, the current design, predominantly addressing coastal flooding, falls short in dealing with pluvial flooding, relying heavily on pumps. This top-down approach neglects environmental and...

As the Global South continues to rapidly urbanize, finding affordable and sustainable housing solutions is paramount. The Global Housing Graduation studio provides the opportunity to design new housing typologies through environmental and social lenses. São Paulo’s challenges with rapid urbanization and social inequality has left more than a...

The survival and development of the city of Maastricht are facing enormous threats from the increasingly frequent and severe fluvial floods, while the leisure industry is the most vulnerable to flood damage as a crucial segment of the economy, accounting for about 50% of the total economic damage. However, flooding is essentially just a natural...

The city Winnipeg, built on the wet prairie, has been threatened by severe flooding for decades. The initial decision to build the city at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers led to the inevitable consequence of recurrent natural flooding. The floods prompted the provincial government to take a series of flood control structural...

Flood resilience has aroused significant interest in coastal areas dealing with a growing frequency of severe rainstorms caused by climate change and urbanisation. At the core of flood resilience is the development of a resilient green-grey-blue infrastructure system that can resist, absorb, and recover from floods in a timely manner. Current...

The cities of the Global South need to become more flood resilient in light of climate change and rapid urbanisation. In this thesis, a land-use modelling case study for the Mumbai Metropolitan Region is executed on the interaction of flood risk and land use, through which future flood resilience was assessed for several urban planning...

The frequency of flooding events is estimated to increase in the Rhine Basin. Cities are becoming increasingly sensitive to climate change, and urban sprawl and urban population growth are bringing more and more people and areas into the risk. The thesis project is about the flooding resilience future in the lower Rhine River basin. The lack of...

Suijkens, Sven (author)
In the summer of 2021 severe flooding occurred in Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands. High damages have been estimated in the Geul catchment, leading up to 250 million euro. Flood risk management in The Netherlands is mostly focussed on reducing the probability of flooding and in lesser extent on damage mitigation. Especially in areas such as...

Flooding is one of the most destructive climate disasters. Since the 21st century, the United States, Thailand, China, and many other countries have been hit by flash floods, which not only exposed the vulnerability of the urban system expansively but also serves as an opportunity to promote resilient city construction. The research begins by...

Given the greater risk of flooding in cities due to climate change, spatial planning systems are increasingly expected to contribute to flood resilience. However, incorporating expanded adaption measures in conventional planning practices remains a major challenge due to institutional barriers. Based on the theories of historical...

The need to respond to increasing flood risk, climate change, and rapid urban development has shaped innovative policies and practices of spatial planning in many countries over recent decades. As an instrumental–technical intervention, planning is mainly used to improve the physical environment (through concepts such as regulating waterproof...

The accelerated rate of climate change questions the capacity of current infrastructures to adapt to altered future climate conditions, specifically in areas prone to floods, such as the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta. Simultaneously the unforeseen effects of ‘hard’ engineering approaches (such as dams, storm surge barriers, defensive coastal...

This thesis focuses on the challenges Istanbul faces due to extensive urbanisation and global warming. The metropole has become vulnerable to climate change, especially to the increasing threat of floods. As a result of urbanisation and poor city planning, the green spaces have decreased considerably in Istanbul, which reduced stormwater...

This research took the Chongqing main town as an example to study the<br/>impact of seasonal floods in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River on the<br/>city, and strategies to improve flood resilience in the river corridor area in<br/>mountainous cities. The study first analyzed the water safety, water conflict,<br/>and water opportunities in...

Societal problems related to climate change include increasing climate extremes, flood risk and environmental degradation of cities. It is important to address these problems in order to improve urban resilience, reduce flood damage, and promote quality of life. This thesis addresses these problems by focusing on increasing the ecosystem...

Mukkamala, Tapasya (author)
The phase “water, water everywhere but too much or too little” aptly explains the current situation of many global cities. Within the numerous challenges due to Climate change and Urbanisation, water ranks the highest as a risk to the society. This risk ranges from water related catastrophes like floods to availability of portable water to the...

The purpose of this thesis is to conduct research on increasing flood resilience and, albeit to a lesser extent, drought resilience of New Orleans, Louisiana, United States of America. Focusing on the Orleans Lakeside sub-basin, this project builds on previous work through a joint design-engineering approach. This project seeks to address two...

In this paper we demonstrate a framework for urban flood modeling with community mapped data, particularly suited for flood risk management in data-scarce environments. The framework comprises three principal stages: data acquisition with survey design and quality assurance, model development and model implementation for flood prediction. We...
