The aim of the proposed research is to develop and demonstrate an approach to simulating and assessing the long term effect of non-structural measures and their interactions, including land use planning, insurance, damage prevention, preparedness (eg. early warning systems) and changed building practices (eg. the use of stilts or bunds), in order to enhance the benefits of such measures.
KEY CUSTOMER PURPOSE
The project results will be of interest to flood risk management stakeholders including: Defra, The Environment Agency, Planning Policy makers and Insurers. The results will be used to inform future policy decisions and improve the effectiveness of non-structural flood risk analysis.
