Nature-based solutions (NbS) are a cornerstone of climate change adaptation worldwide. Yet, evidence on their economic benefits is scarce, especially since the provided environmental amenities usually spatially correlate with climate-induced hazards, effects of which NbS aim to curb. This lack of empirical evidence creates obscurity regarding...

Climate change will lead to more extreme climate and weather phenomena, and this includes the increased risk and severity of flooding. Flooding is one of the most destructive and common natural hazards globally, and rising sea levels and extreme precipitation mean that many human settlements will be situated in climate-sensitive areas. <br/><br/...

Implemented in river landscapes, Nature-based Solutions (NbS) have the potential to reduce flood risk, while also playing an important role in restoring many of the ecosystem services that are lost as result of human interventions and global warming. A barrier to succesfull implementation of NbS is the lack of a global and common framework with...

This report provides a flood risk assessment of the Isiolo River Basin, in collaboration with Nelen &amp; Schuurmans (3Di, FIS Tool) and Zephyr Consulting (SLAMDAM). This flood risk assessment includes a study of the current flood risk management in Kenya, and in the Isiolo River Basin in particular, because the need for proper flood management...

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...

Sea level variations and storm surges are expected to increase as a result of climate change. 570 cities and some 800 million people are by 2050 estimated to be exposed to these phenomena when emissions do not decrease (UCCRN, 2018). It is, however, deeply uncertain if and to what extent emissions will decrease. Additionally, the effects of...

Floods are among the most common and devastating natural hazards worldwide. A key challenge is to select and implement efficient measures to reduce the flood risk, within limitations of budget, time, space, and societal acceptance. Interactions between joining rivers in flood plains and cities lead to several challenges in flood risk studies....

Low-lying, densely-populated coastal areas across the world are under threat of hurricane-induced floods. This is the case in, among others, the Galveston Bay Area. In response to this threat the USACE (United States Corps of Engineers) recommended a plan to reduce the risk of flooding, through a range of measures to form a resilient coast of...

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...

Godlewski, Gabriela (author)
The combination of climate change and increased urbanization has resulted in cities with no historic flooding experience suddenly vulnerable to extreme flood events. Climate change increases the frequency and intensity of rainfalls, whereas urbanization decreases the total porous surface area, resulting in pluvial (rainwater) flooding. One such...

Flood risk models are frequently used to analyse the climate- and socio-economic-driven impact of flooding hazards. However, model validation is rarely done adequately due to the rare occurrence of floods and even less frequent reporting of corresponding damages. <br/> <br/>In this research, validation is defined as the process of ensuring that...

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...

In the Geomatics domain, a point cloud refers to a data set which records the coordinates and other attributes of a huge number of points. Conceptually, each of these attributes can be regarded as a dimension, representing a specific type of information. Apart from routinely concerned spatio-temporal dimensions for coordinates, other dimensions...

Manycoastal cities are struggling with a rapidly growing risk of flooding. The sizeand complexity of these cities often demand a coordinated strategy, consistingof a combination of flood risk reduction measures. A crucial part in the designprocess is the identification of effective flood risk management strategies. However,data and resources are...

A major part of the Netherlands is prone to flooding: roughly 60%. Therefore, a large system of flood defences protects the country from flooding. These flood defences are divided into primary and regional flood defence systems. Primary flood defences protect areas against catastrophical flooding events from the sea, big lakes and major rivers,...

The Netherlands is inextricably linked to a network of water, polders, and dykes. Recent climatic and anthropogenic transitions pose several threats to destabilize this balance including the rise in sea level, extreme weather, and floods which could drastically change the landscape of South Holland as we know it by 2100. With this potentially...

The effects of climate change are felt all around the world. An increased sea level goes hand in hand with an increased risk of flooding. To combat this, the coastlines must be reinforced to withstand future sea levels. However, repeatedly reinforcing coastlines to keep up with the sea level rise (SLR) could prove extremely costly. An...

Since 2019, Rijkswaterstaat has been applying flexible water level management in the IJsselmeer and Markermeer to make the Dutch water system more robust and future proof. The fixed target water level of -0.20 m NAP during summer is replaced by a flexible water level in which the water level can fluctuate between -0.10 and -0.30 m NAP to enlarge...

Adequate flood protection is important to many countries, but especially so to the Netherlands. With a large share of its population centers located below sea level, in so-called polders, the need for flood protection systems quickly becomes apparent. This need is even more pressing with the rise of sea levels and the increase in river discharge...

Highlighted by the recent 2021 flood events in Europe, this research takes the<br/>momentum to underline the necessity for radical solutions that embrace uncertain and extreme discharges at the core of planning and design frameworks. Building upon existing Adaptive Management practices in the Netherlands, this research takes the experience of...
