eConsultant 2: Flood Risk Assessment in South East Asia

Deadline: 27-Jan-2016 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

This assignment is to develop a multi-country flood hazard and risk model for a quick waterresponse financing mechanism and pricing for market-based parametric financial instruments. The model may utilize a combination of various data sources, such as historical flood and rainfall data, to underpin a rapid flood assessment methodology that triggers payouts when the event is more severe than a pre-defined threshold. The extent of an event that may trigger a payout should be measured by real-time data sources, such as satellite-based rainfall data, satellite-based flood data, rainfall gauges and river discharge gauges. The severity of an event may be measured by the population or other exposure in the flood footprint. Continue reading
