Abstract

Between April 19 and 21, 2006, a conference on this theme was organised by Middlesex University's Flood Hazard Research Centre (FHRC) in collaboration with Middlesex's Centre for Decision Analysis and Risk Management (DARM). This volume represents the conference proceedings of the meeting, which sought to explore the state of risk communication in the context of environmental hazards. The event was sponsored by the Flood Risk Management Research Consortium (FRMRC), a UK-based interdisciplinary research consortium investigating the prediction, prevention and mitigation of flooding. The Consortium's activities are supported by the UK Government's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), in collaboration with the UK Government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), and by England and Wales’ Environment Agency (EA), particularly the Joint Research and Development Programme on Flood and Coastal Defence. The UK's Water Industry Research Group (UKWIR), and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) also support the research, which is in two phases. This research has emerged from the FRMRC's phase 1 activities under the Stakeholder and Policy theme.
