Chair Dennis Wagenaar (Deltares)


This course will introduce the concept of Annual Average Loss (AAL) and Loss Exceedance curves (LEC). These concepts can be applied to evaluate disaster risk reduction measures  as input for cost-benefit analyses and are important for understanding disaster insurance products. In the course theses concepts will be explained, examples will be provided of their application to cost-benefit analyses and flood insurance and a small exercise will be carried out to calculate a Loss Exceedance Curve.
