Our goal is to raise awareness of hydrological risks and help bridge the gap between science and practice

POLICY BRIEF - Probabilistic Approaches for Improved Flood Risk Assessment and Management under consideration of uncertainties

One of the challenges faced by Member States in implementing the Floods Directive is how to factor in uncertainties in flood hazard and flood risk assessments within flood risk management strategies. Tools are needed to support decision-making on appropriate flood measures under consideration of uncertainties. Here is how IMPREX can help.

POLICY BRIEF - The importance of including compound events in the implementation of the Floods Directive

Compound flooding, floods due to multiple flood drivers such as heavy rain, storm surges, or high runoff rates, has caused some of the most destructive floods in Europe. Still, the compounding nature of multiple drivers is not sufficiently emphasized in current flood hazard and risk scenarios developed, for example, in the context of the Floods Directive. This may lead to a biased assessment of flood risk, both for current and future climate conditions. This IMPREX policy brief presents guidance for policies that take into account the risks of compound flooding.
