Introduction. Adaptation is necessary to cope with the increasing flood risk in cities due to climate change in many regions of the world. Decision marking of adaptation strategies often requires a comprehensive risk-based economic analysis to indicate the net benefits of proposed options. Priority should be given to measures that are beneficial irrespective of uncertainties in the assessment (no-regret measures). One challenging question is how to assess the associated uncertainties of costs and benefits in the evaluation procedure, since the assessment is complicated by inherent uncertainties of various input variables.
