Climate change and unsustainable land uses: The case of Repetitive Loss Properties
One of the bridging issues in climate change is the role and influence of regulatory approaches to land use, many of which are unsustainable and contribute to issues of cost and resiliency at the community level. As flooding has the potential to increase under climate change scenarios (flood-related property losses have risen to $6 billion annually in the United States (King 2005) and are expected to increase to $300 billion globally (ISDR 2002), the problem of Repetitive Loss Properties as a result of flooding will continue to rise. This chapter contributes to the understanding of more sustainable land use practices as they apply to repetitive property losses from flooding.
