Adapt now to rising floodwaters says UN disaster prevention body

United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction

“Flooding is already on the rise due to increasing population living in flood plains, and climate change will make floods more frequent and severe, with a particular impact on deltas. The recent floods in Bangladesh, Nepal and India are glimpses of a future that we need to start adapting to now,” says Salvano Briceño, Director of the UNISDR in Geneva, the UN’s disaster prevention secretariat.
