Report: Flood Delta City Index, Drivers to Support Adaptation of Cities To help decision makers in delta areas to select appropriate adaptation and mitigation strategies it is necessary to have a clear picture of the main sources of risk and how this risk evolves under changing conditions. Because flood risk is often considered an urgent but almost never acute problem, it is difficult to keep flood risk on the investment agenda. Acknowledging these problems, the Delta Alliance and the TU Delft took the initiative to develop a new index that helps cities to better understand the dominant drivers of risk, formulate ambitions, and compare and share their results with other delta regions.
