[en] Modern flood management approaches require the quantification of flood risk, accounting for the hazard component (flood frequency and inundation intensity) as well as the vulnerability of the floodplains (exposure, value and susceptibility). In this chapter, we present a detailed flood risk model, in which flow computation, monetary valuation of the assets and damage calculation are conducted at the scale of individual buildings or facilities. To avoid the shortcoming of focusing on economic damage, psycho-social impacts of floods are also included in the analysis. The model has been applied to evaluate three flood protection measures on a river reach in the Meuse basin (Belgium). The resulting risk curves show that such a micro-scale risk analysis provides important insights into the relative influence of the different flood protection measures. This could neither be evaluated through a more standard hydraulic analysis nor through the quantification of flood risk by only a single number.
