PROJECT SUMMARY

The primary social performance factors have been used to create a simple model of social performance, the Social Performance Matrix. The Matrix confirms that the challenge for the Agency is to improve the social performance of the new and emerging technologies that are the spearhead of the proposed Floodline Warnings Direct. It further supports the concept that a heterogeneous approach to flood warning dissemination is required utilising a number of complimentary communication methods.
