This flood risk assessment and forecasting for the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basins summarizes the technical findings, includes highlights of the work, and links to the full technical reports and new interactive online resources.
This study explores the uncertainty introduced in global assessments of coastal flood exposure and risk by not accounting for water level attenuation due to land–surface characteristics. We implement a range of plausible water level attenuation values in the flood module of the Dynamic Interactive Vulnerability Assessment (DIVA) modelling framework and assess the sensitivity of flood exposure and flood risk indicators to differences in attenuation rates. Results show a reduction of up to 47 % in area exposure and even larger reductions in population exposure and expected flood damages.
This white paper documents research conducted to assess the impact of climate change in Southeast Asia, especially in regards to differing consequences for rural and urban areas and in relation to flood control and ecosystem vulnerability.
This audit report on “Schemes for Flood Control and Flood Forecasting” by the Comptroller And Auditor General of India (CAG), examined whether schemes for flood control and flood forecasting were efficient and effective. It revealed delays in completion of projects under the flood management programmes.
