FFEM-DB (Database of Flood Fatalities from the Euro-
Mediterranean region) is a database which contains 2.875 cases of flood fatalities that occurred throughout 41 years (1980–2020) in 12 study areas in Euro-Mediterranean area (Cyprus; Czech Republic; Germany; Greece; Israel; Italy; Portugal; Turkey; United Kingdom; the Spanish regions of Balearic Islands and Catalonia, and the Mediterranean regions of South France). FFEM-DB provides not only the number of fatalities, but also detailed information about the profile of victims and the circumstances of the accidents. Flood fatality cases are georeferenced using NUTS 3 level (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics), allowing analyses of fatality distribution in respect to geographic and demographic data.
