Harnessing innovation for open flood risk models and data

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNChapter (peer-reviewed)



The harnessing of recent and future innovations in designing effective risk platforms, models, and data is essential to the reduction of flood risk. Doing so ensures those assets can gain long-term traction for disaster risk reduction, while realistically reflecting an uncertain world. Although the central concepts of flood risk analysis are well established, fragmentation around them is considerable in the data and models used in practice. The following discusses the reasons for this fragmentation and provides recommendations for addressing it.
