Input data set: Human and economic losses from river flooding



Protocol relation: Secondary
Data Type: Other
Simulation rounds: Fast Track
Description:

Increased human and economic losses from river flooding with anthropogenic warming.

The data set includes:
- Static maps (land use, economic variables, population) used to compute impacts
- For each model realization, the merged global maps of economic damage for the historical (hist) and future (rcp8p5) periods, as well as statistic tables of impacts aggregated per continent and per country
- For each model realization, the merged global maps of population affected computed with current socioeconomic conditions and with SSP3 and SSP5 population projections, and the statistic tables of impacts aggregated per continent and per country
- Tables of variables used as input in the impact assessment procedure
- Tables describing aggregated impact results
