Details

A new review of community engagement in flood risk management shows that decision makers agree that technology alone cannot cope with increasing flood events and that communities need to be helped to accept a certain level of flood risk. This means that the Environment Agency needs to promote the development of social capital by proactively encouraging community and citizen engagement.
