This assessment looks at future flood risk in the UK. It considers three climate change scenarios and three population growth projections: low, high and no growth. The analysis presented covers the whole of the UK and the risks associated with coastal, fluvial, surface water and groundwater flooding.
This research by the AVOID2 consortium describes an assessment of the global-scale impacts of climate change under three different potential temperature pathways through the 21st Century. These pathways reach peaks of 2ºC, 3ºC and 4ºC above pre-industrial values by 2100.
