FLOODsite Task 18 has developed a suite of integrated decision support frameworks for long-term flood risk management planning and enacted elements of these within prototype decision support system (DSS) tools.

Task 18 produced a report T18-09-02 ‘Methodology for a DSS to support long-term Flood Risk Management Planning’ by Caroline Mc Gahey et al.  Task 18 also produced a series of reports reviewing existing DSS tools.  All these reports are available by clicking on “Publications Currently Available Online” below.

Prototype DSS tools were developed for the following pilot study sites:

  • The River Elbe (working in collaboration with Task 21)
  • The Thames Estuary (working in collaboration with Task 24), and
  • The Schelde Estuary (working in collaboration with Task 25).

Demonstrations of the prototype tools are available under “Relevance of this research to practice”.

The DSS frameworks (conceptual, methodological and technological) and tools are intended for a range of end-users including policy makers within government authorities, decision-makers within executing bodies, specialist practitioners, and members of the general public interested in flood risk.

Key words: Decision support, evidence base, long term planning, flood risk assessment, flood risk management strategies, future scenarios, robustness, adaptability, sustainability
