Abstract

Research investigating the relationship of climate change to the intensity of climate change to the intensity and frequency of flooding at a regional level will be indispensable if countries over the globe are to adapt to a warming climate. Indeed, weather-related extreme events may be one of the costliest consequences of climate change. Even without climate change, Europe and the world will likely face a dramatic rise in weather-related damages. Our knowledge about climate change and other factors contributing to extreme events and their consequences is improving, but this knowledge will prove insufficient if institutions and democratic procedures are not in place to respond to the risks.
