Flood risk

Submission status

Flooding represents one of the most widespread and damaging natural hazards on the planet and one that looks set to get worse with projected anthropogenic climate change. In this Collection, we explore the natural processes that drive flood hazard, the social and environmental factors that can exacerbate vulnerability and the measures that can be taken to assess and mitigate flood risks.

This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 13: Climate Action.
