Risk Assessment of Flood and Coastal Defence for Strategic Planning (RASP)

To better understand the performance of flood and coastal defences it is often necessary to consider "systems" of defences rather than single defences in isolation.

At present there is limited guidance on assessing risk to large floodplain areas which depend on numerous, perhaps extensive and diverse, systems of defence such as embankments, walls, and moveable structures.

The aim of RASP is to develop and demonstrate supporting methods for dealing with such systems. Click on the links below for further information:
