Development of a flood damage model for the Mekong Delta
An essential part of flood risk assessments is the estimation of damages inflicted by floods. However, little attention has been put on this aspect in recent years, although studies have shown that the damage estimation is one of the most uncertain parts in a flood risk assessment. The main problem is either, that appropriate damage models do not exist at all, or that they are not validated. In Vietnam, there is currently no specific damage model available. This lack is to be alleviated within WISDOM.
