Flood risk in Europe: analysis of exposure in 13 countries

Source(s):  European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC)
Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES)

In recent years, dramatic river flooding has occurred in several regions of Europe causing numerous casualties and the damage reached unprecedented proportions. The protection of human and capital assets from natural hazards is high in the agenda of the European policies and is directly addressed in the European Regional Development Fund for the programming period 2007-2013. This technical note describes a contribution to the evaluation of exposures to flood risk in 13 out of the 15 Countries that can receive support from Structural Funds under the Convergence objective. The work is part of a wider frame of research activities carried out at the Weather Driven Natural Hazard action of the Institute for Environment and Sustainability of JRC.
