The course covers the following flood and coastal risk contexts:

  • Pluvial urban floods
  • Fluvial floods
  • Flooding in the coastal areas in the context of climate change
  • Coastal erosion risk due to sea-level rise

Modelling tools are used in cases studies applied to different locations in the world to address the following topics:

  • Quantitative risk assessment frameworks and approaches.
  • External and internal determinants of risk (Climate change, local land-use change, system deterioration)
  • Climate change-driven Flood hazard modelling
  • Climate change-driven Coastal Erosion hazard modelling
  • How to convert Hazard estimates to quantitative risk assessments
  • Interpretation and communication of quantified risk information
  • Understanding quantified risk information

This is a hands-on course, with group work by teams of participants with technical backgrounds (e.g. engineers) and non-technical backgrounds (e.g. policymakers and managers). Each  team does exercises in the context of workshops while being guided by plenary lectures.

Whether you are from a technical/engineering background or a non-technical one, you will have a meaningful learning experience in this course.
