The World Resources Institute has launched an online, free resource to estimate the economic, urban and demographic risks of river flooding. Users of ‘Aqueduct Global Flood Analyzer’ can investigate risks at a country, basin or state level, and apply different future climate and economic scenarios. A further layer is planned, to look at the risks to the world’s biggest cities.
