Many fast growing cities around the world suffer from floods, caused by excessive rainfall, or extremes such as hurricanes/typhoons. Population pressure and immigration causes people to settle in locations less suitable for habitation (former wetlands, coastal zones, river floodplains). In developing countries, these areas are highly dynamic in terms of human activities, and develop in an unplanned fashion. Resilience levels are low: there is little understanding of the situation, and general poverty prevents personal or community action. City authorities however want to reduce the effects of disasters or prevent them all together.
