There are quite a few very succesful countries in utterly unlivable and hostile places. Dubai for example.

The Dutch started building dykes and reclaiming low-lying land long before they started being rich.
Obviously the UK must be well behind the Dutch to be caught out so badly by the floods in Northern England.
