Flood loss assessments: Case studies

This publication is part of the Integrated Flood Management Tools Series (IFM) being compiled by the Associated Programme on Flood Management. This IFM Tool collects existing methodologies in the framework of the flood loss assessment. It includes mainly case studies concerning OECD countries. In response to the future exposure to floods, a wide range of tools and mechanisms have been developed to reduce and manage the risks of flooding and to provide an interdisciplinary approach to analysing flood management strategies and measures. These tools and mechanisms could focus on the development of thorough flood damage assessment methodologies in order to provide a point of comparison for different future scenarios with socio-economic and climate change drivers. The assessment of such scenarios would provide an improvement to current flood management practices.
