Short summary
The study analyzes possible climate-change impacts on flood damages in Germany. The study was initiated and supported by the German insurance sector, and the main goal was to identify general climate-related trends in flood hazard and damages and to explore sensitivity of results to climate scenario uncertainty. The study makes use of climate scenarios regionalized for the main river basins in Germany that were fed into a hydrological model.
