Project objective

This project is looking at community engagement for long-term adaptation to flood and coastal erosion risk.

Climate change may increase flooding or coastal erosion for many communities. The aim of this project is to develop approaches to engagement on climate risks and future options in locations where existing measures will not work in the long term.

The Environment Agency wants to work closely with affected communities to help them make decisions about their future. This project is producing resources for practitioners and decision-makers to guide this collaborative engagement process.

The project will complete in 2021.
