UR-Flood - Understanding Uncertainty and Risk in communicating about floods
URflood was developed in response to the 2nd pilot call for projects resulting from the ERA-Net CRUE consortium, which was brought together with the vision to support and develop an extensive coordination and integration of regional, national and European research programmes and policies in the field of flood risk management. As such URflood aimed to produce a guidance for use throughout the EU that looks at how to implement good practice flood communications and how to respond to differences in the interpretation and utilisation of results. This guidance is expected to support a move towards Flood Risk Assessment and Management (FRAM) under the EU Floods Directive, improving resilience to the social, economic and environmental consequences of flood risk. URflood results also aim to contribute to the improvement of flood risk planning and responses to flood warnings through investigating and illustrating the ways flood risk communications are incorporated into the knowledge systems of different actors.
