Communication and engagement in local flood risk management
CIRIA has launched new, free guidance to support those working in local flood risk management.
The two guides, Communication and engagement in local flood risk management (C751) and Communication and engagement techniques in local flood risk management, companion guide (C752) bring together experiences, as well as ideas that have been tried and tested.
The guides will be useful in identifying, engaging and working with people likely to be affected by flooding, or integral to its future management.
It can be used at several stages of managing flood risk, from building engagement and awareness, and the preparation of a local flood risk management strategy or surface water management plan, through to recovery after an event, and benchmarking activities.
The guidance will provide practical help for:
Lead Local Flood Authorities
District authorities and other local authority organisations
Other Risk Management Authorities
National government, national regulator and strategic bodies
