Floods may cost South Asia $215 billion a year by 2030

13 Sep 2017, Bloomberg LP

Flood risk is expected to persist due to urban sprawl and the lack of resilient infrastructure, which exacerbate the vulnerability. Policymakers need to take the risks into account and consider the increased frequency of 100-year flooding events.
