Flood impact on mainland Southeast Asia between 1985 and 2018 - The role of tropical cyclones

Source(s):  Journal of Flood Risk Management (Wiley)

Using the Dartmouth Flood Observatory large flood data archive, this study aim s to assess the trend of flood occurrence in the Mainland Southeast Asia (MSEA) in 1985–2018, and quantify the associated impacts on humans. A differentiation that authors make is between landfall-induced floods (TCFloods) and floods by all causes (ALLfloods).

Some of the main conclusions of this study are (pp. 10-11):

  • Floods occurrence and maximum magnitude of ALLFloods significantly increased for 1985–2018 (p < .01), but not for TCFloods;
  • TCFloods had higher mortality and displacement rate than ALLFloods;
  • Myanmar and Cambodia suffered higher flood‐induced mortality, despite of fewer flood occurrence. This was at least partly caused by the low flood protection standards in these two countries.
