Abstract

This study has re-analysed data from earlier UK studies rather than collecting new survey data. The results help us to further understand the impacts of flooding, residents’ preparedness, vulnerability and resilience related to flood events, the driving forces of human behaviour before, during, and after floods. The results also allow lessons to be learned (albeit in the context of specific populations and locations) on how individuals and households may be able to increase their resilience to flood impacts and capacity to recover. The results will be of use to people living in flood risk areas and to those agencies with a responsibility to respond to flooding in order to improve pre-flood preparedness and post-flood recovery.
