Formerly Moody’s RMS

According to Moody's flood data at the 100-year return period:

2.44 billion

people (3-in-10) are exposed to flood risk, for 650-million of them that risk is greater than 50cm.



people are protected from fluvial flood risk due to the presence of defenses

264 million

people live in vulnerable coastal communities with 70% living in just 5 countries

Plug the gap in flood risk management

Flood is the most prevalent peril globally. Anywhere that it rains, it can flood. Moody's Global Flood Data can help to provide a better grasp of the risk in both modeled and unmodeled territories based upon the best available data, latest science, combined with advances in machine learning.

Best available data

Produced using the latest digital terrain models (DTMs) combined with proprietary in-house enhancements to best capture the high-gradience of the peril.

Latest science and research

Combined advances in science with technology to overcome shortcomings in areas of limited data, trained on data from over 23,000 hydrological catchments in our probabilistic HD Flood Models.

Advances in technology

Utilizes unique machine learning techniques to understand the implications of defences and capture local standard of protection validated with areas of known standard of protection.

Wealth of experience

RMS has over 20-years of flood modeling experience and the global flood data can complement areas of full probabilistic models, or act as an entry point to new markets.
