FLOODsite Task 10 looked at innovative methods to understand, model and evaluate damages to people, property and the environment from flooding.  There were four strands to this research:

  1. Development of a methodology for modelling the impacts of flooding on people in terms of loss of life.

  2. Development of methodologies for quantifying damages and demonstrating the effectiveness of flood warning in reducing flood impacts.

  3. Development of a methodology for quantifying effects of floods and flood induced pollution on ecosystems.

  4. Development of a methodology for evaluating flood risk based on a range of criteria, including social and environmental as well as economic factors. 

These methodologies are intended for engineers, social scientists and government bodies involved in spatial planning and flood risk management and assessment.  Such damage evaluation methods may be needed when preparing flood risk management plans required by the Floods Directive.

Key words: Loss of life; flood warning; flood induced pollution; multi-criteria analysis.
