SUFRI - SUFRI Flood risk assessment methodology
Flooding from rivers, estuaries, the sea or rainfalls poses a risk to people and causes significant economic costs. The operation of flood defence systems contribute to reduce risks, however, flood risks cannot be completely eliminated. Thus, flood forecasting, warning, planning and other non-structural measures are even more significant on reducing flood risk. For this reason, there is a requirement for methods to estimate flood risk (societal and economic risk) and the effect of these measures on risk reduction. This research report deals with the 'residual risk and vulnerability analysis, providing overall information about risk estimation, the developed methodology of SUFRI and several case studies.
