Toelichting (Engels) This report discusses the updated and improved method for flood damage assessment in the Netherlands. The data used in the previous standard flood damage and fatality assessment model was outdated and the method did not comply with the latest knowledge on flood impact assessment. Both the method and the input data in the method needed updating and improvements in order to allow the damage assessments which are needed for the current policy decisions. New data, models and insights were available which enabled improvements in the HIS-SSM method. Therefore, an improved method based on the actualised data has been developed: the SSM2015 method. This report explains the need for improvement of the Standard Damage and Fatality assessment model (HIS-SSM), it describes and motivates the improvements and it shows the effects of the new method on the resulting flood damages. The report focuses on damage to businesses, residences and infrastructures, but also briefly considers other damage types.
