Toelichting (Engels) The Dutch government has indicated that it will explicitly consider potential loss of life when deciding on the stringency of new flood safety standards. This paper presents the results of a research project that evaluated the potential roles of two risk metrics: individual and societal risk. These metrics are already used in the in the Dutch major hazards policy for the evaluation of risks to the public. Individual risk concerns the annual probability of death of an average, unprotected person. Societal risk concerns the probability of a multi-fatality event. This paper discusses technical aspects of the use of individual and societal risk metrics in flood risk management, as well as policy implications.
