Why is flooding such a problem?

Flooding of communities has potentially devastating implications for people and their property. Such flooding can start from various sources (e.g. rivers, the sea, surface water and the sewerage system) but the negative impacts are the same.

Climate change is predicted to increase the risk of such flooding over the coming decades:  it is therefore imperative that the resilience of communities at flood risk is enhanced – through the raising of awareness, avoiding the risk of flooding in the first instance, alleviating flood risk through physical intervention (natural or engineered defenses) and, importantly, having the capacity in place to assist those communities who suffer flooding.
