What is a community 'flood plan'?
The impacts of flooding are felt most acutely by people marginalised from society, without the networks to respond quickly, and without the financial resources to recover as easily. Action is needed at all levels, and it is vital that the causes of flooding are addressed urgently.
The role that community groups can play in increasing the resilience of people in their area is substantial. Through engaging those vulnerable to flooding, residents can have a say in how floods are responded to and be part of the solution. Involving the community in flood planning means they are prepared when the worst happens.
