• Flood risk

    Floods are one of the greatest threats to human well-being and development, affecting over 250 million people every year (UNISDR, 2013). Communities living in poverty are at the greatest risk, because they are often least well equipped to prepare for and respond to disasters. Furthermore, recurrent disasters such as flooding undermine a community’s ability to develop in the long-term, trapping them in a poverty cycle.

  • Flood Resilience Portal

    The Flood Resilience Portal provides practitioners who live and work in flood-affected communities with easy access to the resources they need to build resilience to floods, including:

    • Key documents and tool kits
    • Summaries of current research with key recommendations
    • Current best practice in building flood resilience
    • Locally-relevant, contextualised information
  • Flood Resilience Game

    The Flood Resilience Game is an educational game that allows players to experience, explore, and learn about the flood risk and resilience of communities in river valleys.

    The game is designed to help participants – such as NGO staff working on flood-focused programs – to identify novel policies and strategies which improve flood resilience.
