been performed according to the HyMex (Hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean Experiment) framework. HyMex is an international project focused on quantifying the hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean, analyzing high-impact weather events in the context of global change. According to their approach, the articles have been sorted in three groups_ (a) those that focus on short-to-medium term effects directly involving people and goods impacted by the disaster; (b) those that focus on medium-to-long-term socio-economic effects; and (c) those that focus on short-to-long-term physical and physiological effects on individuals. The aim is to highlight the approaches used to address this issue in various scientific fields and thereby to promote the sharing of both data and methodologies and facilitate the use of an advanced multidisciplinary approach to the NDIA.
