Abstract

This paper addresses the reasons for the increase in flood damage to property, the scale of that damage and the responses to the flood hazard. The areas examined are South-Limburg (The Netherlands), the Pays de Caux (France), the area between Brussels and Leuven (Belgium) and the South Downs (England). They have features in common: dissected terrain with dry valley systems of periglacial origin; soils derived from loess; recent intensification and specialisation of agriculture, and housing areas proximal to farmland. There are, however, differences between the study areas
