All coastal cities need to understand that water is going to be coming more frequently than ever, and design systems that absorb and store flood waters safely.

The devastating flood in Houston may be called a “1,000-year flood,” meaning it supposedly has a 1-in-1,000 chance of happening in a given year. But parts of Harris County reached 1,000-year flood levels in another storm in 2016; other parts of the county experienced a “500-year flood.” Another 500-year flood happened in 2015 . If you’re 28 and have always lived in Houston, you may have experienced eight “100-year” floods so far in your life.


Smaller but still damaging floods are even more frequent. Some amount of flooding is unavoidable in the low-lying city. But urban planners and designers say future storms that are likely to continue to become more common and more intense because of climate change, and that Houston–and any city with a risk of flooding–has a choice: It can continue dealing with catastrophic flooding or accept that the floods will continue and redesign so that it is resilient to them. The city could both to make future floods less damaging, and to become better able to rebound when floods do happen.

One step the city and county can take is creating new green infrastructure (and protecting the amount that already exists) that can soak up excess rain. The lowest, most vulnerable areas, some argue, shouldn’t be used for housing or other development. “Those should be green spaces,” says Philip Berke, a landscape architecture and urban planning professor at Texas AM University. “You shouldn’t allow development in those.”

That plan, in place before Tropical Storm Harvey, is unusual–for years, officials have supported development in low-lying areas because construction has been an engine of economic growth. But it’s also an example of how the city could help particularly vulnerable people: The poorer you are, the more likely you are to suffer damage in a flood, both because cheap housing is more likely to be in a floodplain and because the houses are less likely to be elevated as much as necessary. (Low-income families also struggle to afford insurance coverage or to get payouts when they have it, as adjusters often argue that it’s difficult to determine whether damage came from the disaster or deferred maintenance.)

Implementation Monitoring

The FSB, through the Standing Committee on Standards Implementation (SCSI), coordinates and oversees the monitoring of the implementation of agreed financial reforms and its reporting to the G20. This includes reporting on members’ commitments and progress in implementing international financial standards and other policy initiatives; Dsquared2 JEWELRY Rings su YOOXCOM dmgYxo
(which are an obligation of membership); and Jennifer Zeuner Cecelia Golden Chain Collar Necklace fzIzh

In order to strengthen the coordination and effectiveness of this monitoring, the FSB, in collaboration with the standard-setting bodies, established a framework in October 2011 - the Coordination Framework for Implementation Monitoring (CFIM) - for monitoring and reporting on the implementation of the G20 financial reforms. The CFIM was subsequently endorsed by the G20 Leaders at the Cannes Summit as a way to "intensify our monitoring of financial regulatory reforms, report on our progress and track our deficiencies".

The CFIM distinguishes between priority areas, which undergo more intensive monitoring and detailed reporting via periodic progress reports and peer reviews , and other areas of reform.The current list of priority areas, reviewed annually by the FSB in light of policy developments at the international level, comprises:

The FSB reviews the list of priority areas annually in light of policy developments at the international level.

A designated body -- for example, an FSB working group or the relevant standard-setter -- undertakes the monitoring and reporting of implementation progress in each priority area. The monitoring of the implementation in Angara Classy Ruby and Diamond Three Stone Engagement Ring in Platinum 6B5fzkb
of reform is undertaken by the FSB's Implementation Monitoring Network (IMN) based on survey responses of member jurisdictions.

With the main elements of the post-crisis reforms agreed and implementation underway, more detailed analysis of the effects of those reforms is becoming possible. The FSB, in collaboration with the standard-setting bodies (SSBs), is analysing the effects of reforms, including whether the reforms are working together as intended. The main findings are summarised in the annual FSB reports to the G20 on the implementation and effects of the G20 financial regulatory reforms.

In order to enhance the analysis of the effects of reforms, the FSB, in collaboration with the SSBs, published in July 2017 a framework for the post-implementation evaluation of the effects of the G20 financial regulatory reforms. The framework aims to guide analyses of whether the reforms are achieving their intended outcomes, and help identify any material unintended consequences that may have to be addressed, without compromising on the objectives of the reforms.

Links on this page provide information on implementation progress for priority and other reform areas, G20 progress reports, FSB thematic and country peer reviews, the effects of reforms, and the FSB’s initiative on international cooperation and information exchange.

Read about FSB progress reports on financial regulatory reforms prepared for G20 Leaders Summits and for meetings of G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors.
