Risk-Averse Economic Optimization in the Adaptation of River Dikes to Climate Change

Wang, L; van Gelder, Pieter HAJM; Vrijling, JK; Maskey, Shreedhar; Ranasinghe, Roshanka


To guarantee a safe flood defence in a changing environment, the adaptation to climate change needs to be considered in the design of river dikes. However, the large uncertainty in the projections of future climate leads to varied estimations of future flood probability. How to cope with the uncertainties in future flood probability under climate change is an inevitable question in the adaptation. In this paper, the uncertainty introduced by climate projections was integrated into the ‘expected...[Show more]
