Risk analyses &
policy making

Identify threats, quantify risks and set the right priorities. We combine model-based simulations with post-processing techniques to quantify risks and uncertainties.

 

Some examples of how we can make your business risk-wise:

  • Probabilistic flood risk assessments. Quantify the magnitude of floods for different return periods in urban and river environments.

  • Visualize and communicate flood risks to a broad audience using GIS.

  • Account for uncertainties, only take no-regret measures.

  • Quantify the risk of water shortages on both the short and long terms.
