With average temperatures rising globally, floods are becoming more frequent and more prolonged, causing devastation to people, houses, agriculture and production. Flood irrigation planning and flood management strategies are under review, and water-borne diseases such as cholera are increasing. We look at the effects of floods and the measures being taken to prevent or combat these effects in such places as Venice, Argentina, Bangladesh and the Netherlands.
