• Understand the implications of the new data on current and future levels of risk.• Investigate where new data requires inclusion across flood risk decision making.• Determine which decisions or processes may need re-consideration in light of the new data.• Understand the impacts on long term investment planning. • Synthesis new research into future flood frequency understanding across multiple disciplines.• Consider the impactions of that research for medium and long term decision making.• Understand where knowledge gaps remain and feed those gaps into future research. • Consider the implications of the research for residual risk tolerance.
