Global drought hazard

Description: 

Water scarcity conditions are expressed in this study by means of the Water Crowding Index (WCI), i.e. the annual water availability per capita (Falkenmark, 1986; 2013). Due to its ease in use and its simplicity in understanding, the WCI consists among the most often used indicators in water scarcity assessments, see for example: Falkenmark, 2013; Hoekstra et al., 2012; Kiguchi et al., 2014; Kummu et al., 2014; Oki & Kanae, 2006; Schewe et al. 2014, Veldkamp et al., 2015a, 2015b; Vorosmarty et al., 2000; Wada et al., 2011a. In line with previous studies, we used ≤1700 m3/capita per...

Global drought hazard

Description: 

In this study we used daily run-off fields (0.5º x 0.5º) from the global hydrological model PCR-GLOBWB to calculate yearly water availability (van Beek et al., 2011; Wada et al., 2014). PCR-GLOBWB was forced using bias-corrected meteorological data (0.5º x 0.5º) as provided by the ISI-MIP project (Hempel et al. 2013) using five Global Climate Models (GCMs): GFDL-ESM2M, HadGEM2-ES, IPSL-CM5A-LR, MIROC-ESM-CHEM, NorESM1-M. Climate projections used in this study are based on three representative concentration pathways (RCPs), namely RCP2.6, RCP6.0 and RCP8.5 (Taylor et al., 2012; Van Vuuren...

Afghanistan river flood hazard

Description: 

The geographical location of Afghanistan and years of environmental degradation in the
country make Afghanistan highly prone to intense and recurring natural hazards such as
flooding, earthquakes, snow avalanches, landslides, and droughts. These occur in addition to
man-made disasters resulting in the frequent loss of live, livelihoods, and property. The
creation, understanding and accessibility of hazard, exposure, vulnerability and risk
information is key for effective management of disaster risk. Assuring the resilience of new
reconstruction efforts...

Global river flood hazard

Description: 

Riverine flood hazard: The GAR 15 global flood hazard assessment uses a probabilistic approach for modelling riverine flood major river basins around the globe. The main steps in this methodology consists of: - Compiling a global database of stream-flow data, merging different sources gathering more than 8000 stations over the globe. - Calculating river discharge quantiles at various river sections. In another word calculating the range of possible discharges from very low to the maximum possible at series of locations along the river. The time span in the global stream-flow dataset is...
