Flood Risk Management

Distributional consequences of flood risk management

This project provided a robust, national assessment of the distribution of costs and benefits of Flood Risk Management (FRM). The benefits of this work will:

  • inform policy on the funding of flood prevention;
  • develop a wide reaching, national quantification of who benefits and loses from the current flooding approach;
  • appraise alternative options for FRM funding approaches;
  • help to understand the implications of the current move towards a risk based approach to flood risk insurance;
  • and improve the understanding and appreciation of 'fairness' in the current FRM funding approach and alternative scenarios.
