Raise risk awareness

Another important aspect of risk reduction is to foster risk awareness and encourage risk-averse behaviour. A well-established risk management approach to reduce flood risk needs to include those at risk, be they private homeowners or commercial businesses. All parties need to understand the flood hazards and potential consequences that apply to them, in particular to what extent they are at risk and how they can do their share to protect themselves. Whether protection is structural, local around their property, or larger scale, it must be integrated into an overall flood protection scheme.
