Aqueduct Floods is an online platform that measures
riverine and coastal food risks under both current baseline conditions and future projections in 2030, 2050, and
2080. In addition to providing hazard maps and assessing risks, Aqueduct Floods enables its users to conduct
comprehensive cost-beneft analysis to evaluate the value
of dike food protection strategies.
Aqueduct Floods aims to empower disaster risk analysts
and managers with quantitative information on food
risks and adaptation strategy costs, and to help inform
policy and investment decision-making. This technical
note explains in detail the framework, methodology, and
data used in developing Aqueduct Floods to help users
better interpret the risk information presented on the tool
and understand the full strength and limitations of our
data and methodology.
