Beyond response and recovery: an introduction to the Zurich flood resilience program
This issue brief provides an overview of the global challenges caused by flooding and how these are tackled through the work of the Zurich flood resilience alliance.
Zurich Insurance Group launched a dedicated flood resilience program in 2013, based on a new approach to cross-sector collaboration. The program brings together flood risk research, community-based programs and risk expertise. It looks for, and shares ways that community flood resilience can be measured and improved. The program directly helps about 125,000 people through projects in flood-prone communities in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Mexico, Nepal, Peru and the U.S.
