Abstract

[Extract] Increasing numbers of people live in flood-prone areas worldwide. With continued development, flooding will become more frequent. Acceleration of the hydrological cycle and sea-level rise resulting from climate change could worsen the problem. We must therefore address the social, economic and political factors that force or allow some people to inhabit high-risk areas.
