Insurance as an agricultural disaster risk management tool: evidence and lessons learned from...

Pilot projects in India and Bangladesh demonstrate that index-based weather insurance products, developed using satellite technology, can reduce the financial risks to smallholder farmers from floods and droughts. Scaling up such schemes has the potential to meet the needs of very vulnerable...

Institutional options available to ensure that index-based flood insurance (IBFI) is socially...

Flood disaster is one of the greatest challenges affecting the livelihoods of the people of Bihar, India, hampering interventions aimed at addressing poverty, nutrition and health issues. Small and marginal farmers, tenant farmers and female-headed households are the most vulnerable to floods....

Making index-based flood insurance socially inclusive in Bangladesh: challenges and options.

Floods and other weather-related disasters plague farmers in Bangladesh, and climate change threatens to exacerbate these risks. At stake are the livelihoods of millions of small and marginal farmer households that are at risk of becoming further entrenched in poverty. Lack of compensation or...

Nature-based solutions for hydro-meteorological risk reduction: a state-of-the-art review of the...

Hydro-meteorological risks due to natural hazards such as severe floods, storm surges, landslides and droughts are causing impacts on different sectors of society. Such risks are expected to become worse given projected changes in climate, degradation of ecosystems, population growth and...

Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis Handbook

The Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis (CVCA) is a tool used to gather and analyze information on community-level vulnerabilities to and capacities for climate change. It informs the identification of actions, at the community level or more broadly, that support communities in increasing...

California fires: Building resilience from the ashes

The report, based on a study using Zurich’s award-winning Post-Event Review Capability (PERC), is the result of a collaboration between Zurich North America, DuPont and the nonprofit Institute for Social and Environmental Transition (ISET-International). The insights are drawn from research and...

The blue-green path to urban flood resilience

Achieving urban flood resilience at local, regional and national levels requires a transformative change in planning, design and implementation of urban water systems. Flood risk, wastewater and stormwater management should be re-envisaged and transformed to: ensure satisfactory service delivery...

Leaving No One Behind:Lessons from the Kerala Disasters

This report, commissioned by Mathrubhumi and undertaken by the Centre for Migration and Inclusive Development (CMID), under the guidance of Dr. Muralee Thummarukudy, chief, Disaster Risk Reduction and operations manager, UN Environment, is a collection of invited articles by subject...

City Characterisation Report: Miami

The City Water Resilience Approach (CWRA) helps cities plan and implement actions to build resilient urban water systems. A critical first step in this process is understanding the local water system, and the factors that contribute to or detract from resilience. This report details research...

Tracing and unsettling path dependency: Creating space for Indigenous knowledge in river management

The impacts of climate change and intensified development on floodplains increase the risks posed by flood and emphasize the importance of understanding both the causes of, and mechanisms for, breaking path dependency. Despite incremental changes, decision-makers remain largely “locked-in” to...

Governance innovation through nature-based solutions

Policy Brief #25, December 2019. There is growing recognition that using the properties of nature can help provide viable and cost-effective solutions to a broad range of societal challenges, including disaster risk reduction.

Evaluation of future flood risk in Asian megacities: a case study of Jakarta

The purpose of this research is to assess the future flood risk in rapidly urbanizing cities under climate change. A flood inundation model and a flood damage costs model were employed to project the future flood risk. We employed the combinations of eight global climate models (GCMs) and three...

Natural Disasters in Latin America and the Caribbean

Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is the second most disaster-prone region in the world. Some 152 million people have been affected by 1,205 disasters (2000-2019). Although many hazards are cyclical in nature, the hazards most likely to trigger a major humanitarian response in the region...

Sea-level rise and local government: Policy gaps and opportunities

This paper identifies some barriers, gaps and opportunities in the legal and policy options available to local government when managing the effects of sea-level rise due to climate change, and outlines the challenges facing local government in adapting to sea-level rise and climate change. The...

Adaptation to Sea-Level Rise: Local Government Liability Issues

This paper addresses the legal frameworks and rules about what local and regional councils in New Zealand can and cannot do to adapt to the coastal hazards associated with sea-level rise and climate change. The focus is on what councils might be liable for in respect of housing affected by...

The extent of EQC liability for damage from sea-level rise

This paper considers the extent to which damage associated with sea-level rise is covered by insurance administered by the Earthquake Commission (EQC). EQC provides a natural disaster insurance scheme to help households recover from disaster and manage the fiscal risk to the Crown from natural...

2019 Resilience Brief

BOMA Canada is proud to present the BOMA Canada Resilience Brief – an important tool to help building owners and managers begin to consider resilience and the potential risks imposed by extreme weather events. Following the disastrous events of 2016 Fort McMurray wildfires and the 2018 New...

Optimizing distribution of droneports for emergency monitoring of flood disasters in China

Floods occur frequently, impacting large areas, displacing thousands of people and causing great losses. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) remote sensing is easy to obtain high‐resolution image that is immensely helpful to timely assess the flood situation and provide scientific decision‐making for...

Assessment of flash flood susceptibility potential in Moldavian Plain (Romania)

Concentration of time (Tc) is a frequently used parameter in the evaluation of the hydrological response of different sizes hydrographic basin in case of rainfall events. The present study is innovative, because it has created an index that identifies the small‐sized hydrographic basins that are...

Analysing flash flood risk perception through a geostatistical approach in the village of...

Flash floods are unexpected events, which evolve rapidly and affect relatively small areas. The short time available for minimising risks requires preparedness and active response. In this context of risk management, the flood risk perception of the local population is the first step towards...
