The research has developed a Health Impacts of Floods Model which builds upon existing models to conceptualise the various impacts of floods upon human health, along with the factors which may contribute to, intervene or mitigate these impacts. The focus is not to derive quantitative or aggregate measures of risk (as the literature shows this to be extremely difficult and problematic) but to understand how and why the health impacts of hazards vary between locations, groups and individuals in society, and what shapes the ability of people and institutions to respond and cope. The model is meant to be used as an organisational framework for analysis and further research.
