PROJECT SUMMARY

We acknowledge that the recovery process can have significant health, economic and social impacts long after the flood waters recede. We are working with communities and schools in Hull to understand the effects of flooding on children, adults and the economy. We have used this research to develop a policy on flood vulnerability and recovery and will work together with our partners to improve infrastructure and community reslience to future flood events.
