Toelichting (Engels) This thesis examines to what extent anthropogenic climate change will result in more damage from weather-related natural disasters during the next decades, in comparison to non-climatic drivers of risk. A review is made of the scientific literature on historic disaster losses, as well as projections of future disaster losses. Also, an analysis is made of changing risks from flooding of rivers for a case study area in The Netherlands, and their climatic and socioeconomic causes.
