Figure Recurrence of flood events in Europe between 1998-2005
Note: In producing this map, satellite images of the flooded areas were examined and used as a basis for mapping the major river catchments affected by flooding during the period 1998-2005

Figure Riverine flood damage potential
This map presents riverine flood damage potential for a 100-year return period, current climate and no defences; catchments and sub-catchments of less than 500 km2 are not included

Figure Score of the different scenarios of measures in the MCA for the Dijle around Leuven (Belgium)
Reference = actual situation including already decided measures; scenario 1 = flood conveyance (infrastructure works in the city); scenario 2 = flood storage concentrated in nature areas upstream; scenario 3 = flood storage distributed in the valley; scenario 4 = further upstream flood storage in Wallonia; scenario 5 = non-structural measures (prevention, flood forecasting, resilience measures and improved assistance). Note that in this exercise, a combined scenario of structural and non-structural measures was not included.

Publication chemical/x-pdb Urban environment - SOER 2010 thematic assessment
The global population is congregating in our cities. Eighty per cent of the world’s estimated nine billion people in 2050 are expected to live in urban areas. Our cities and urban areas face many challenges from social to health to environmental. The impacts of cities and urban areas are felt in other regions which supply cities with food, water and energy and absorb pollution and waste. However, the proximity of people, businesses and services associated with the very word ‘city’ means that there are also huge opportunities. Indeed, well designed, well managed urban settings offer a key opportunity for sustainable living.

Figure Urban flooding — impervious surfaces reduce the drainage of rain water and increase the risk for urban flooding
The map shows the average soil sealing degree inside the UMZ of European core cities (core city defined in Urban Atlas / Urban Audit). Soil sealing degrees are represented in coloured dots. The city dots are overlaid onto a modelled map displaying the change in annual number of days with heavy rainfall between the reference periods 1961-1990 and 2071-2100.

Press Release Water management in Europe faces rising challenges as ecosystems weaken
Water pollution and excessive water use are still harming ecosystems, which are indispensable to Europe’s food, energy, and water supplies. To maintain water ecosystems, farming, planning, energy and transport sectors need to actively engage in managing water within sustainable limits.
