EP 18: EXTRA POLICY- Flash Floods & Infrastructure

August 2nd, 2021

Flash flooding is fresh in our minds following the devastation seen recently in Germany. Urban areas are more likely to experience this type of "surface water" flooding because they have a lot of hard surfaces. Last year, flooding in Senegal displaced over 4000 people and this year, we have seen events in China, Nigeria, Afghanistan, London, USA, Guatemala, Sudan and others. Clearly, we have a big problem with flooding, but specifically the unpredictable nature of flash floods. In this mini-sode, we discuss some recent events, how floods and climate change are related and the effects on infrastructure moving forward.
