‘OUR FLOOD RESILIENT HOME’ 

 

Stories of ways in which people have adapted

their homes to be more flood resilient 

 

Check out our FREE flood guide that helps show how you can make a home flood resilient.

We're creating these episodes to showcase the benefits of resilient design so that we empower others to see that there are ways to adapt to flooding and other natural hazards. We don’t just want to focus on the doom and gloom but rather highlight success stories of HOW people have made positive changes to their properties and environments that can inspire others to do the same. 

‘OUR FLOOD RESILIENT BUSINESS’

Stories of businesses that have adapted their premises and practices/procedures to be more flood resilient

In January 2020, Ed’s RIBA publication ‘Retrofitting for Flood Resilience: A Guide to Building and Community Design’ was released. The book is a detailed and highly visual resource that showcases the causes and consequences of different types of flooding, as well as tools, techniques and strategies at a variety of scales that can be used to adapt the build/natural environment to be resilience to this threat.

“We’re at the start of the climate decade. The ideas in this book are absolutely key to what we should be doing.”
