WMO Gears Up for Extreme Weather, Climate Change in Asia

14 FEBRUARY, 2017 BY FLOODLIST NEWS IN ASIA, CLIMATE NEWS  · 0 COMMENT
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (WMO) – Climate change, environmental degradation, population growth and urbanization are putting pressure on water supplies in many parts of the Asian region, and exposure to extreme weather and other hazards is increasing.

The World Meteorological Organization’s Regional Association for Asia, which holds its four-yearly conference from 12-16 February, will consider how to meet these challenges. The meeting, hosted by the Government of the United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi, will focus on how to strengthen weather, climate, water and environmental services to keep pace with rapidly evolving needs.

WMO’s Regional Association for Asia groups 35 Member States and territories across a variety of geographic and climatic zones. The Region extends from the Arctic to the Equator, spanning the world’s highest mountains and low-lying coastal plains and islands. It is home to densely populated nations and crowded cities as well as vast desert expanses and remote rural areas.

Flooding, Mudslides Strike Peru, Leaving 72 Dead and Thousands Without Homes

Intense rains have led to flooding and mudslides in northern Peru this week, leaving thousands homeless and dozens of residents dead.

According to the Associated Press, at least 72 people lost their lives and thousands are now homeless after a series of storms wreaked havoc on the South American nation.

At least 115,000 homes have been destroyed, roadways are impassable and 117 bridges are reportedly washed out, reports the AP.

"There hasn't been an incident of this strength along the coast of Peru since 1998," President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said in a statement broadcast live Friday afternoon.

The president declared a state of emergency in the affected areas and said his government is prepared to provide shelter and assistance to those left homeless by the storms, reports the Voice of America.
The National Police have rescued eight people trapped for three days in Cachipampa and removed the body of an 88-year-old man killed in the floods. On Friday, rescue efforts were still underway.

Dramatic video out of the department of La Libertad shows gallons of water overcoming several buses and truck, killing at least five people.

Report – Flood Losses in Europe to Increase Fivefold by 2050

The European Environment Agency recently published a report on flooding in Europe, “Floodplain management: reducing flood risks and restoring healthy ecosystems”, where researchers examined data on floods dating from 1980 to 2010, and found significant increases in flooding – which will only get worse as time goes on.

The study assessed the data, researchers have predicted that by 2050, flood losses will have increased fivefold. The fivefold increase in occurrence was attributed to climate change and increasing value of land around the floodplains, and urban development.

3,500 Flood Events in Europe Between 1980 to 2010
The study also revealed that between 1980 and 2010, 37 European countries registered 3,563 floods in total. The highest number of floods was reported for 2010 (321 floods), when 27 countries were affected. This number is associated with the ‘Central European floods’, which occurred across several Central European countries during May and June 2010.

Chart — Reported flood phenomena, European Environment Agency
Note: Flood severity is an assessment of flood phenomena magnitude. It considers the reported values on frequency, reported total damage (in Euros and descriptive classes), number of flood events within one flood phenomena unit and severity classes as reported in the Dartmouth Flood Observatory database (ETC/ICM, 2015b). All phenomena with fatalities are in the ‘very high’ severity class.
Italy and Hungary Most Exposed
Based on reporting from nine countries, the report maps the share of population living in floodplain areas. Among those countries, Italy has the largest population living in flood-prone areas (6.7 million people, 11% of the population) whereas Hungary has the highest relative share of people living in such areas (1.8 million, 18% of the population).

Increase in Flood Losses
According to the study, the rise in floods will only continue. The study expects flooding instances to increase by seventeen-fold by 2080. More rain will fall as the years pass because of climate change, which will contribute to about one fifth of future flood damage. But the majority of the cause will be from building on wetlands.

Annual flood losses can be expected to increase fivefold by 2050 and up to 17‑fold by 2080. The major share of this increase (70–90%) is estimated to be attributable to socio‑economic development as the economic value of the assets in floodplains increases, and the remainder (10–30%) to climate change
