Flood Risk in numbers
Flood events are inflicting increasing costs on our communities due to growing urbanisation, degradation of the environment and the effects of climate change. Every year, billions of Euro are spent in compensation of damage inflicted by floods. Yet, a fraction of these costs could be invested to anticipate and prevent major losses.

The combined effect of climate change and socio-economic change is likely to drammatically increase the cost inflicted by floods in Europe (source).

A climate service for disaster risk management
Floods can originate from different processes, such as coastal storm surge, heavy rainfall, and river overflow.
We do our best to provide a service tailored on the needs of decision-makers to help them manage the risk triggered by flood events.
Meet Our Team
We are climate scientists and risk experts, with years of international experience in the field. We have been working together with local administrations and environmental agencies to provide a service that could fit their needs for risk management.

The CLARA project
FLOODMAGE is one of the many climate services developed under the Horizon 2020 project CLARA – Climate forecast enabled knowledge services.
The aim of CLARA innovation action is to develop a set of leading-edge climate services building upon the newly developed Copernicus Climate Change Services near-term forecasts and sectorial information systems (SIS). Watch the Video
