Informative note on the fourteen episodes of atypical cyclonic storm produced in December 2019 to May 2020
Storms have occurred between December 2019 and May 2020, resulting in strong winds in various parts of Spain.
This issue, focused on "The importance of prevention" includes top level contributions about adaptation measures to flood risk, carried out in the Ebro Basin by its Basin Authority as well as a series of pilot cases to reduce flood risk in buildings carried out by the Directorate-General for Water. The topic of the possible adaptation measures in the coastline is also covered, and the results of two research projects devoted to climate change adaptation and loss prevention are described in detail: RESCCUE, for which a new methodology to estimate flood losses has been developed, and NAIAD, that has coined the concept of "natural assurance systems" to assess and include ecosystems as loss prevention elements.
The issue is complemented with reviews on the challenges of insuring pandemic risk, on jurisprudence relevant to CCS' activities and on the way CCS has adapted itself o the complex situation experienced in the past months, with a succession of serious loss events followed by the COVID-19 crisis.
