Costes del cambio climático en el País Vasco por riesgo de inundación
Global warming can modify the intensity and the seasonal distribution of rainfall, modifying the frequency of flooding events. Flood risk is usually determined as a combination of the probability of flooding and the consequential damage. The present analysis considers the potential effect that climate change can have on the loss-probability curves that characterize flood risk. It also considers the importance that economic and social development has when it comes to estimation of damages for flooding. The quantitative case study corresponds to the catchment basin of the river Urola. This analysis constitutes a useful exercise for strategic flood management as it may help to adopt better and more suited decisions.
