RETROFITTING FOR FLOOD RESILIENCE
  • RETROFITTING FOR FLOOD RESILIENCE

    This three year EPSRC funded research  study explores a new method for assessing the flood resilience of existing communities. It provides a framework that can be used to consider multiple flood risk scenarios, with analysis that explores the temporal aspects of recovery, the consequences of property level flood resilience, and how flooding impacts on placemaking. Throughout the study, new tools and techniques for the assessment, data gathering, communication and visualisation of flood risk have been developed to more rigorously understand the consequences of flood events (both tangible and intangible) and benefits of property level resilience (PLR).
