FRS19209 - Communities framework

Theme:Policy, Strategy & Investment
Project status:Underway
Start date:21/02/2019
End date:31/12/2020

A re-evaluation of the evidence base on communities and flood and coastal erosion risk management has determined the status of our knowledge on community engagement in and capacity for: • Asset and channel maintenance • Incident response and recovery • Decision, designs and funding for schemes • NFM and land management • Household level adaptation and resilience • Long term adaptation to sea level rise and changing rainfall extremes. The review will show where the evidence base is mature, but there are gaps in translation of evidence into practice. The review will also show where fundamental knowledge gaps remain. Following the evaluation, a structured pipeline of research and development projects will be produced which will help authorities both embed research better and address the longer term evidence needs.
