Socio-economic risk assessment of flooding for Russian coastal regions
An increasing number of hazardous natural phenomena is one of the results of climate change for Russia. Risks increase in coastal areas with high concentration of hazards and high density of population and economic activity. In 2012, an integrated damage from floods was about 1 billion euros; floods had caused death of over 200 people. Particularly destructive consequences were for Krymsk in Krasnodar region. The purpose of the work is to estimate the influence of hazardous hydrological phenomena (e.g. floods, groundwater level rise and surges) on sustainable development of coastal regions.
