Abstract

PROJECT CLOSING STATEMENT The first phase of a study reviewed the effectiveness of consultation and communication of procedures and practices used in flood and coastal defence in England and Wales. The study puts forward recommendations and a plan for additional work which has not been commissioned within the joint Defra / EA programme, however the Environment Agency is undertaking work on consultation and communication to support a wide range of activities. SUMMARY OBJECTIVE To review the effectiveness of consultation and communication procedures and practices used in flood and coastal defence in England and Wales and, from this, to put forward suggestions for best practice methodologies to enable the public and stakeholder groups to better appreciate flood and coastal defence. KEY CUSTOMER PURPOSE To identify, develop and evaluate methods for communicating flood and erosion risk and uncertainties to a range of stakeholders. This will lead to consistency and best practice in communicating flood and erosion risk and hazard, and to improve understanding of risk and uncertainty among stakeholders, and support moves to risk-based planning guidance.
