The Flood Resilience Community Pathfinder Scheme was launched in 2013 with 13 local authorities to enable their communities to find simple, effective ways to minimise their flood risk, improve their levels of preparedness, and build confidence and increased peace of mind. The first output from the project was a Rapid Evidence Assessment on resilience to flooding at an individual, community and social level. This includes exploring key issues in defining and measuring resilience in the context of flood risk management as well as identifying interventions aimed at increasing resilience.
This report will form part of the evaluation baseline for the 13 projects and also help with future research priorities within Defra. It was produced by Collingwood Environmental Planning and is available to view on the Defra Research website.
