Flooding is among the most serious and dangerous of all global risks, causing loss of life and damage to property, livelihoods and economies. Climate change is expected to intensify flooding in the coming decades, while economic growth and urbanization place more people and property in flood-prone areas. Despite these dangers, flood risks are often underestimated and poorly managed due to lack of transparent, accurate data on current levels of flood protection, both in developing and developed countries.
