How can we engage individuals and communities more effectively around flood risks in a changing climate?
Two years on from the wettest winter on record, a new report identifies 9 principles for communicating about flooding in a changing climate.
It is a collaboration between Climate Outreach and Cardiff University, supported by the ESRC, the Climate Change Consortium of Wales and the Sustainable Places Research Institute.
The report represents a powerful statement from a diverse cross-section of experts. It is the result of a workshop which brought together key voices on communicating flood risks including 27 climate scientists, social scientists, representatives from major NGOs and national policy makers who have endorsed the report.
This is a practical resource for campaigners, policy makers and those working with communities directly affected by flooding to. Its purpose is to help build community resilience for future climate impacts as well as develop more productive conversations about climate change within the context of flooding.
