Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance

Floods affect more people globally than any other type of natural hazard. In the last ten years alone, floods have affected over 734 million people. Moreover, as a result of climate change, both the number of floods and their impact on affected communities are expected to increase dramatically. In 2018, IFRC, Zurich Insurance and a combination of non-governmental and research organizations formed a fiver year partnership called the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance. Its long-term vision is that floods will have no negative impact on the ability of people and businesses to thrive.
