In this paper, the authors use four main dimensions: vulnerability, human behavior, hazards and expected utility to analyze their impact in scenario planning when cross-matched with human development adjusted, gender inequality and multidimensional poverty indexes within flood risk management strategies. They argue that the four dimensions are among the central factors behind the poor quality of life. Hence, they propose a backcasting method for a scenario planning and based on sustainable principles at long run to provide a desired and better quality of life as a contribution by the human beings in reducing vulnerability to risk and exposure to hazards.
