Short summary
Flash flooding is the leading cause of weather-related deaths. Therefore, a comprehensive assessment of the social risk component is necessary. Integrated social vulnerability can incorporate spatial distribution and contribution and the combined effect of exposure, sensitivity and resilience, and it can be expressed as the integrated social vulnerability index (ISVI). ISVI makes it possible to design tailor-made strategies for flood risk management, thereby increasing the efficiency of plans.
