• Flood risk

    Floods are one of the greatest threats to human well-being and development, affecting over 250 million people every year (UNISDR, 2013). Communities living in poverty are at the greatest risk, because they are often least well equipped to prepare for and respond to disasters. Furthermore, recurrent disasters such as flooding undermine a community’s ability to develop in the long-term, trapping them in a poverty cycle.
