Flooding

Floods are the most common natural disaster globally and the leading cause of natural disaster related deaths worldwide. The World Bank estimates that approximately 29% of the global population lives in areas at risk of major flooding events.

Overview

Flooding as a result of rising sea levels, extreme storm events and climate change driven melting of snowpack, glaciers and permafrost increasingly threatens the lives and livelihoods of people and communities across the globe.

Impacts

The World Resources Institute (WRI) has estimated that globally by 2030, 15 million people and $177 billion in urban property will be impacted annually by coastal flooding, while 132 million people and $535 billion in urban property will be impacted annually due to riverine flooding.
