Floods are the most prevalent natural hazard in Europe. Has flood risk increased in the continent? How, where, and why? Are climate change impacts apparent? How do socio-economic trends and associated land-use and land-cover change impact flood risk? This book considers national and regional perspectives on flood risk change, detection and attribution of change, and the re-insurer's point of view.
