The floods in the Netherlands in the summer of 2021 led to severe economic damage and losses in the affected area. A first estimate in September 2021 showed that more than 2,500 houses, more than 5,000 inhabitants and around 600 businesses were affected. Using the Dutch standard Flood Damage and Loss Model (SSM2017), and based on figures from...

Flood events are expected to increase in their frequency and severity, which results in higher flood risk without additional adaptation measures. The information gained from flood risk models is essential in effective disaster risk management. However, vulnerability estimations are often a large driver of uncertainty, and flood damage is...

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...

Due to rising sea levels and projected socio-economic change, global coastal flood risk is expected to increase in the future. To reduce this increase in risk, one option is to reduce the probability or magnitude of the hazard through the implementation of structural, Nature-based or hybrid adaptation measures. Nature-based Solutions in...

In this research, the flood damage caused by heavy rain and plastic blockage in the neighbourhood of Atonsu, Kumasi is quantified. Rapid urbanisation and poor waste management result in floods with an increasing impact in Kumasi, the fastest growing city of Ghana. This rapid growth of the city results in uncontrolled urbanisation of the...

Residential assets, comprising buildings and household contents, are a major source of direct flood losses. Existing damage models are mostly deterministic and limited to particular countries or flood types. Here, we compile building-level losses from Germany, Italy and the Netherlands covering a wide range of fluvial and pluvial flood events...

Climate change is presenting one of the main challenges to our planet. In parallel, all regions of the world are projected to urbanise further. Consequently, sustainable development challenges will be increasingly concentrated in cities. A resulting impact is the increment of expected urban flood risk in many areas around the globe....

In Shanghai, the main threat to the city’s safety is a typhoon induced storm surge in combination with a high astronomic tide in the Huangpu River. Historical flood events have shown that the weakness of the floodwall, with potential overtopping and breaching along the Huangpu River and its branches, has caused great economic damage and loss of...

This paper presents a recently developed model in the Netherlands for the online estimation of damage caused by floods. The model attempts to fill the lack of a consistent framework for the assessment of damage for all water authorities and all floods in the Netherlands. A framework was necessaiy to be able to evaluate the cost and benefit of...

Flood damage estimation is essential to flood risk analysis. Flood hazards, values of elements at risk and vulnerability of elements determine flood damage. However, these determinants entail uncertainties. In this study, water depth, values of elements at risk and damage function are selected as three key parameters. The local sensitivity...

Introduction Flooding is a natural phenomenon, but human activity has significantly altered the natural drainage processes thereby occasionally causing greater flood risk. Urban flooding has become more frequent due to a number of factors including climate change, urban growth and an increase in paved surfaces. Pluvial flooding results from...

Wagenaar, D.J. (author)
Introduction Flood risks can be reduced by either reducing the probability or the consequences of a flooding. These consequences can be quantified with flood damage models. Such models determine flood damage based on the water depth and the land use. This thesis will investigate the need to also use the flood duration as input parameter. Problem...

Ten Veldhuis, J.A.E. (author)
This study presents a first attempt to quantify tangible and intangible flood damage according to two different damage metrics: monetary values and number of people affected by flooding. Tangible damage includes material damage to buildings and infrastructure; intangible damage includes damages that are difficult to quantify exactly, such as...

Insurance databases form a promising data source that can be used to improve pluvial flood damage estimations. This paper describes the key characteristics of an insurance database on water related damages to private buildings and content in the Netherlands that has been made available for research. The paper presents preliminary results of a...

Wijdeveld, A. (author)
Flooding not only induces a risk which is related to direct loss of life for humans, animals and plants. During flooding, toxicants which are normally stored or otherwise unavailable might be released. The spreading of these pollutants during the flooding or, often more important, the persistent presence of toxicants in the soil or sediment...

In this report we develop a GIS-based multicriteria flood risk assessment and mapping approach. This approach has the ability a) to consider also flood risks which are not measured in monetary terms, b) to show the spatial distribution of these multiple risks and c) to deal with uncertainties in criteria values and to show their influence on the...

Effective risk reduction requires the optimal understanding of the causes of risk, options of risks reduction and ways of their implementation. Especially with regard to risk reduction options much has changed in recent decades. Many measures and instruments, which are the actual tools of risk reduction, have developed to reduce risk in various...

Flood warning benefits have hitherto been modelled by predicting the damages saved by moving the contents of properties on receipt of a flood warning. The research described in this report has developed a new flood warning benefit estimation model capable of capturing a much wider range of potential economic benefits. This model is based upon a...

This report highlights a series of key challenges and opportunities towards developing integrated strategies for flood risk management for the London and Thames Estuary region. The report suggests that the predominant feature of Integrated Flood Risk Management (IFRM), adaptive co-management and strategic planning is the emphasis on a holistic...
