SUMMARY OBJECTIVE:

To develop a clear vision and draft strategy for social science research within the Joint Defra/Environment Agency FCERM research programme over the next five years.


KEY

CUSTOMER PURPOSE:

This research will put in place a draft strategy for social science in FCERM R&D research programme which will help embed social science within the wider context of FCERM. This should result ultimately in holistic solutions to flooding issues. It will also ensure that social science and interdisciplinary research projects are clearly rooted in a `joined up` strategy. This will be of interest to Defra FCERM research and policy staff as well as social science staff in Defra and the Environment Agency.
