Floods Continue To Be The Most Economically Devastating Natural Disaster In The World

As the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) made public their information on the economic damage caused by
significant floods worldwide since June 2013, it stands clear that floods remain to top the list of economic losses associated with
natural disasters.

According to this information, the flood of August 5, 2011 in Thailand was by far the most economically damaging flood between 1900
and 2013, causing roughly 40 billion U.S. dollars of damage.

River and coastal flooding are the most frequently occurring natural disasters and are increasing in incident more rapidly than any
other natural catastrophe.

Analysis made by the World Bank reveals that flooding is not just the most regular natural disaster- it is also the disaster with
the biggest financial and humanitarian impact in terms of the number of individuals affected and in terms of financial asset exposure;
that is buildings, transportation facilities, utility facilities and other long-lived assets.

According to the UN the financial toll of natural disasters cost the world a record amount in 2011. The total expense was around $380
billion. According to EMDAT, the global financial losses in 2011 alone due to floods and storms totalled US$ 121.6 billion. The overall
economic losses due to floods in 2013 were approximated at $140 billion, which was lower than the $196 billion suffered worldwide in 2012. Nevertheless, it is expected that disaster losses will remain to increase and even surpass the financial development in some regions with
 anticipated worldwide financial losses to strike US$ 500 billion.

The business case for more powerful catastrophe risk preparedness is apparent:

When critical infrastructure is struck, businesses lose their lifeline. Interruptions in power, water supply and telecommunications are
top issues. Even relatively shorter periods of disruption can cost companies devastating production reductions, leaving them susceptible
and undermining their long-term competitiveness and sustainability. When companies leave, they may never ever return; hence costing
communities, cities and even countries devastating economical losses.

The proof on increasing flood danger needs to be the tipping point for governments, countries and communities as well as private entities,
to establish new systems to safeguard populations as well as important infrastructure. However, executing permanent facilities typically
has a lead time of Thirty Years or more, thus there is an immediate need for the establishment of short-term, first line flood protection.


"Fighting water with water".

Environment Solutions offers the strongest, most efficient and versatile solution for temporary large-scale flood protection- the

When deployed properly, the NoFloods Mobile Barrier can divert/ keep back as much as 130 cm of water depending on the model deployed.
Due to the unique and innovative design as well as the materials utilized, the NoFloods Mobile Barrier shows extremely high strength
but at the same time, high versatility. The tube system can be interconnected with our special junctions, which enables an almost
infinite prolongation of the Barrier.

It can be deployed in numerous setups (circles, 90 degrees turns and so on) and on a high variety of surface areas (sand, lawn, asphalt,
concrete and so on).

As the only system, the NoFloods Mobile Barrier cannot just be made use of preventively but likewise curatively (deployment directly in
the water). This ability has actually been tested and certified by the French Sécurité Civile (Department of Civil Defence and Emergency Preparedness).

This double ability makes the NoFloods Mobile Barrier the single most reliable solution before and after flooding has taken place.
The NoFloods Mobile Barrier replaces the conventional usage of sandbags (1 KM of Nofloods Mobile Barrier replaces the use of 150,000
sandbags,2500 m3 sand and 149 truckloads of sand).

The NoFloods Mobile Barrier secures people, facilities and the environment with incredibly low environmental effect, as the barriers
are made from 100 % environmental friendly and recyclable materials and are mostly recyclable.
