France Flood Map

JBA Risk Management is pleased to announce the release of our latest France flood mapping, updated to 5m resolution.

The maps address river and surface water flooding, allowing insurers, reinsurers, brokers and property search companies to comprehensively assess property level flood risk across the country against the highest resolution flood data available in the market.

Annual economic losses from flooding in France are estimated to be in the region of 664 million Euros which is expected to double by 2040. The France Flood Map brings the latest science and data to the forefront of risk management practices.

The mapping is complemented by river flood defence data delineating areas protected by flood defences, allowing clients to assess flood risk against their own risk preferences and gain a realistic view of risk.

The combination of high-resolution data and defended areas enables the most appropriate differentiation of properties at risk for greater confidence in property level assessment, accumulation control and risk management.

The updated JBA France Flood Map can be accessed directly from JBA or via our network of resellers for easy integration into existing systems. We also offer consultancy services to help identify exposure hotspots, run per-risk flood assessments and manage accumulations.

For more information, get in touch today or read our Executive Briefing. The France map update is part of a wider Continental Europe update.

5m flood maps for Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and the Czech Republic are now available at 5m resolution. Get in touch for more information.
