A current research project by members of the Hydrological Extremes Research Group at the University of Birmingham is aiming to explore changing flood risk, public flood perceptions and responses, alongside changing flood management in locations in the UK and Netherlands.
The study will consist of a door-to-door flood risk perceptions questionnaire survey and mapping exercise (phase 1), as well as a serious flood game workshop (phase 2).
Phase 1 is currently being implemented in UK case studies.
For this, we require participants who live in the study areas and are over the age of 18 to complete a questionnaire survey and a practical mapping exercise intended to gauge their flood risk perceptions. The mapping part of this study is a practical exercise, where
Personal data will be kept confidential, and all responses will be anonymous in the project findings and in any publications.
