PROJECT SUMMARY

The project aimed to increase community engagement and participation by increasing involvement in flood history to enable them to plan better for possible future flooding as a result on ongoing environmental change. The study was based on the lower Severn floodplain and worked to communicate environmental science to the community to enable them to better understand the science of flooding and develop best practice through the Lower Severn Community Flood Forum.
