Falling through the gaps: how global failures to address the climate crisis are leading to increased losses and damages
To better understand the realities and needs of frontline communities, the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance explored flooding impacts and risks in Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Nepal.
Case studies on losses and damages in these countries are summarized in this report. They build upon empirical observations, including post-event forensic analysis (e.g. the Post-Event Review Capability (PERC)), resilience assessments (e.g. the Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC)), relevant global and national impact and risk databases, and reflections of key actors and communities themselves.
