SC140002 - Realistic planning scenarios for FCRM and FIM - to capture the true spatial nature and probability of flood risk

Theme:Incident Management & Modelling
Project status:Completed
Start date:01/04/2014
End date:30/09/2017


This project has developed methods and guidance to address the need for realistic planning scenarios that account for the risk of widespread flooding across England and Wales, flooding from multiple sources (river, surface water and sea) and the potential impacts.

The results of this project have informed the National Risk Register and the National Flood Resilience Review. The underpinning science developed in this project will continue to be taken forward by the Environment Agency in its work to deliver the National Flood Resilience Review.

A summary and method report are available to download.  A practitioners guide will be published early in 2018.
