Incorporating A Resiliency Plan is key to reducing costs and loss of life.
Implement the policy and programs to build and stay Strong!
There are strategic approaches to build better and smarter. Deal with Flooding, Droughts, and Heat Waves. Having a Plan and Preparing for known event reduces the financial impact and potential loss of life.
“Floods caused by rivers impact more people than any other natural hazard, and the estimated global damages run to over a $100bn a year.
Researchers have long predicted that a warming world would have direct impacts on these events but until now the evidence has been hard to establish.
Floods are affected by many different factors in addition to rainfall, such as the amount of moisture already in the soil and other questions such as changes in land-use that can speed up water run-off from hillsides.
This new study looks at this issue in some depth, by creating a Europe-wide database of observations from 4,262 hydrometric stations in 38 countries, dating back to 1960.
The analysis finds a clear but complex impact of climate change on river flooding”
Resiliency is the key to a better future!
