Blazey, Neil and McCarthy, Simon ORCID: (2020) Communicating impacts in flood warnings and forecasting. Project Report. Environment Agency, Bristol, UK. e-ISBN 9781849114516. [Monograph]


The aim of this research project, which was carried out in 2017 to 2018, was to help build this capacity. This report reviews the existing evidence, explains the methodology and describes the outputs of the research.

Much existing and ongoing work is relevant to this project. In particular, the project built on the recent Public Dialogue on Flood Risk Communications (SC120010) and Real-time Inundation Mapping for Flood Incident Management (SC120023) projects, taking on board their findings and recommendations. As such, the objectives for this project were to develop and test innovative and effective approaches to describing impact and context information within flood forecasting and warning services to enhance the decision-making and behavioural responses of those receiving flood warnings.
