[Return to previous page]

New guidance from Cardiff University and Climate Outreach, supported by the ESRC, the Climate Change Consortium of Wales and Sustainable Places Research Institute, cites the report from the Sciencewise-supported public dialogue project with the Environment Agency on flood risk communication.

The guidance is entitled ‘Communicating flood risks in a changing climate. 9 principles for promoting public engagement’.

The guidance is the result of a workshop which brought together 27 climate scientists, social scientists, representatives from major NGOs and national policy makers who all endorsed the report. The workshop was in June 2015, and the guidance was published in November 2015.
