What is the role of climate change in exacerbating riverine flooding?

Climate change can exacerbate riverine flooding through changes in precipitation patterns, increased intensity of rainfall events, and sea-level rise. These changes can lead to increased flood risks, damage to infrastructure, and impacts on communities and ecosystems. Implementing flood management strategies, promoting ecosystem-based approaches, and adapting to changing hydrological conditions are essential for mitigating the impacts of riverine flooding in a changing climate.
