10 January 2008
At the end of 2007 nearly all the work of Subtheme 1.3 on Vulnerability will be finished or near completion. It is therefore appropriate to review the main research findings and outcomes of these socio-economic components of FLOODsite. In the second of two articles, Volker Meyer and Annett Steinfuehrer from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Leipzig and Sue Tapsell from the Flood Hazard Research Centre at Middlesex University review the remaining two tasks that make up this theme.
