This is the final report of the Flood Risk Communications Public Dialogue project, funded by the Environment Agency and Sciencewise. It summarises outputs from the project’s first series of public dialogue workshops (‘Stage One’ – two workshops each in Leicester, Newtown, Oxford, Skegness and York), and a final workshop combining a selection of participants from all five locations (‘Stage Two’). The purpose of the dialogue was to involve members of the public in:
The results will inform the way in which the Environment Agency presents its maps of flood risk and the way it coordinates with other agencies over these kinds of communications. The project is also intended as a basis for all agencies working with communities at risk of flooding to be more consistent and joined up in their communications and action, and to develop a more outcomes-focused approach.
