Short Review-Flood Appraisal Modelling Practice - Using EA Economics Framework - FD2711

FD2711 Rapid Expert Review of Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management appraisal modelling
This study analyses a series of five case studies to explore how assurance of flood risk modelling is currently undertaken. The study covers the type of models used, how quality assurance was undertaken, issues that arose during assurance and how these were addressed. From this, the project explores what, if any, changes are needed to improve assurance of flood risk modelling and use of the results in subsequent stages of appraisal.
