Abstract: The goal of this paper is to describe the actual procedure that is used to model the consequences and costs of a flood of the Scheldt basin, dealing with the actual uncertainties. This contribution fits in the framework of a project worked out by IMDC NV. Main goal of the project is to estimate the average annual risk of a flood of the Scheldt basin on the one hand and to estimate the effect of the position and type of structural measures on that average annual risk on the other hand. These results will be used in the framework of a societal cost-benefit analysis to compare different long term scenarios of preventive measures to be taken for the Scheldt basin
