This paper evaluates the distributional effects of floods across different household types and income levels. Using German data,  it analyses the distributional effects of providing relief and funding it through taxes on energy consumption. Finally, it analyses the distributional effects of households covering the cost of a  flood by themselves and getting government transfers that reward investments in risk reduction.
