Exposure of population in European cities to flood risk under climate change (scenario A2 — high emissions; 100-years flood)
Per city, the population living in the Larger Urban Zone as described in the Urban Atlas/Urban Audit definition (GMES, 2010 and Eurostat, 2010) is considered. The calculation uses the population distribution on urban land-use classes from Corine land cover 2000. Furthermore, neither coastal floods nor flood protection measures are considered in the calculation. Based on the hydrological model LISFLOD.
