Abstract

Internationally unique research quantifying the costs of emergency response to natural hazards; results accepted by the UK Treasury. Taking the UK's 2000 flood, a secondary source data (Belwin), and case study surveys, the research showed that these costs, at 10.7% of event damage, were much higher than previously appreciated.
