Flood risk model & tool

At the core of the SEADRIF’s parametric insurance component sits the Flood Risk Monitoring Tool, which provides near real-time assessments of the magnitude of a flood and its potential impact. The tool combines various data sets to determine the severity of the event in terms of how likely it is to occur.

How the tool can help

The Flood Risk Monitoring Tool serves as the basis for the first insurance product and enables the SEADRIF Insurance Company to calculate if a payout has been triggered. The tool also serves as a public good to provide governments with rapid, reliable, and relevant information to make more informed decisions before, during, and in the aftermath of a flood.
