Flood risk in port cities

Flood risk in port cities: a global assessment of the 21st century

The Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) actively works with national governments to highlight the role of urban governance and policy to deliver cost-effective responses to climate change. 

FHRC contributed to a report that extends on previous work published by the OECD (Nicholls et al. 2008), and demonstrates how damages would be expected to change under different plausible scenarios.  The report quantifies the benefits of global climate change mitigation and local adaption to reduce this growth in risks, and hence the implications of different portfolios of action versus no action.  In particular, the study quantifies the additional adaptation efforts that will be required to manage this problem.
