Abstract

The government and the insurance industry have recently launched Flood Re, a scheme that aims to make home insurance affordable to those living in a flood risk area. But that alone does not solve the problem, writes Swenja Surminski. These efforts should be accompanied by improvements to land-use planning, as well as by steps to build stronger flood defences, as these are some of the changes that will provide a more comprehensive management of flood risk.
