The increased frequency of extreme events, including flooding, is one of the expected impacts of climate change, and research in this field has attempted to address the cost-benefit analysis of adaptation to this type of disaster.

Falling in this stream of research, the seminar on "Estimation of Perceived Flood Damage in Tokyo Metropolitan Area" illustrates the main findings of a study aimed at assessing flood damages in the Tokyo area, based on a hedonic land price model and using a two-step procedure to correct for the bias on flood hazard. The seminar, given by Azusa Okagawa, National Institute for Environmental Studies, Japan, will be held at FEEM in Venice, in video-conference with Milan, on Tuesday November 22, 2011.
