    3 Performance of Coastal Risk Reduction Strategies. Until the latter part of the s, the use of hard structures in coastal areas (sometimes termed coastal armoring), was the preferred method for reducing the effects of waves, storm surge, and erosion. The NFIP was established by Congress with passage of the National Flood Insurance Act in , to help reduce future flood damages through NFIP community floodplain regulation that would control development in flood hazard areas, provide insurance for a premium to property owners, and reduce federal expenditures for disaster assistance.

Although coastal erosion problems have been identified since the s at several coastal locations in Mauritius, they have become more serious since the s, owing to the active development of tourism activities and other types of land development in the coastal area (Baird et al., ).To counter-act the problems that have originated from some of these changes in land use, coastal Author: Susumu Onaka, Hiroshi Hashimoto, S.R.

Its effectiveness de-pends on the level of preparedness and correct response. Therefore the responsible authorities should provide timely and reliable flood warning, floodFile Size: KB. As the first defence to the natural environment, residential buildings are responsible for protecting human lives and assets in society.

Nevertheless, some residential buildings in coastal areas are located in places where the population is exposed to the risk of drowning. Rise in the sea level due to climate change could increase these : Axel Creach, Emilio Bastidas-Arteaga, Sophie Pardo, Denis Mercier.

The cost of direct damage for flood was US$ billions (World Bank, ). In the flood damage was estimated to be US$ 2 billion (Hye, ).File Size: 3MB. Existing flood and erosion damage functions typically relate water depth above the lowest floor and percent of footprint undermined to estimate damage to a building.

Unfortunately, existing damage functions are based largely on opinion and flood insurance claims data for low-rise buildings.Development along coastal areas over the last several decades has placed a number of homes in environments with wind driven rain, high winds, storm surge, flooding, and erosion.Elevated Residential Structures, FEMA () Protecting Manufactured Homes from Floods and Other Hazards, FEMA P () Mitigation of Flood and Erosion Damage to Residential Buildings in Coastal Areas, FEMA () Protecting Floodplain Resources, FEMA () Reducing Damage from Localized Flooding, FEMA ().
