Effective food risk visualisation

The efective communication of food risk ofers the opportunity to ensure communities can adapt and respond appropriately to changing local conditions. At a time of diminishing resources, such local responses, which can empower communities and make them more resilient to uncertain future food events, are vital. The most general and accessible type of food communication are food risk visualisations, i.e. pre-prepared emergency food maps. However, evidence suggests there is much we can do to improve their ability to communicate the complexities of food risk to a range of stakeholders. This paper considers the development of food risk visualisation approaches in the UK, presenting fndings from a series of targeted workshops over twelve months, where the needs and criteria of stakeholder groups for efective food risk visualisation were assessed via co-creative processes. Key stakeholders included local authorities, emergency responders, vulnerable homeowners, Environment Agency, business owners and, crucially, communities. These users need certain requirements to be considered in order for future food risk visualisation to be efective, in particular simplicity, a central hub of information, diferent visuals available for the same data sets/problems, diferent maps available for diferent users, consistent terminology and integrated community knowledge (e.g. local food groups/help).
