Article
Full-text available
The construction of flooding and flood risk management are complex and there is potential for dissonance between individual and institutional understanding and experience of both. In this article, we start by investigating how flooding is managed and the change in paradigm from flood defence to more adaptive approaches, which embed resilience into...
Article
Product texture and mouthfeel contribute significantly to product appreciation. For medical nutrition products (MNP) the textural properties also contribute to both swallowing efficiency and safety, therefore impacting the nutrition and fluid intake of individuals in need of adapted textures (e.g. dysphagia, poor dental status). The need for an int...

This Simple SuDS guide takes residents and community groups through the basics of SuDS, what they are, what they look like, who is responsible for them, and what residents and communities can do if something is wrong. It then looks, one by one, at individual SuDS features, their maintenance needs and what might go wrong
Article
In this paper, we discuss the need for flood risk management in England that engages stakeholders with flooding and its management processes, including knowledge gathering, planning and decision-making. By comparing and contrasting how flood communities experience ‘community engagement’ and ‘partnership working’, through the medium of an online que...

Partnership working requires utilising democratised ways of working to enable the creation of equitable partnerships and ways of working. To achieve this you need to work with the three ‘T’s’ of good engagement: Time: take the time to listen to the community. And invest time in developing; Trust: develop relationships based on trust, which will lea...
Conference Paper

The communities perspective on leadership and partnership working within flood risk management. Summary of the main themes elicited from interviews and a online questionnaire; the importance of communities being at the heart of partnership working; the impact of inappropriate build, the lack of a pro-active response to flood risk management; the kn...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the face of predictions that climate change will impact the size, duration and frequency of flooding events, is it time to question the sustainability of development in and around floodplains? Should planning be changing to ensure that we aren’t creating the right conditions for flooding? • the importance of community engagement in the planning...

The Loddon catchment covers an area of 680km2 across Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey. Rivers within the catchment include the Loddon itself, the Lyde, Whitewater, Blackwater, Hart, Bow Brook, Emm Brook and Barkham Brook as well as many other smaller streams and tributaries. The topography of the catchment and disparate location of properties which...

Sensory science is continuously adapting to improve the assessment techniques available. Temporal methods evaluate the effect of time on the perception of sensory characteristics; however few techniques investigate the effect of total product ingestion. Sequential profiling offers the most complete assessment of attributes over successive ingestion...

Project
LANDWISE is one of three projects funded through the NERC Evaluating the Effectiveness of Natural Flood Management (NFM) programme running from 2017-2021. The goal is to evaluate land-based NFM measures current being used by innovative farmers in the West Thames River Basin. This will be achieved by integrating local knowledge about land use and management within catchment management scenarios to be tested through multi-model approach from field to large river basin scale. Technical work will include a field survey, remote sensing, modelling and data visualization. For more information see landwise-nfm.org or @NERC_NFM.
Project
The objectives are three-fold: (1) to understand how flooding and flood risk management are constructed, represented and communicated to the public and managed by institutions; (2) to examine how flooding and flood risk management are perceived, interpreted, responded to and owned by people at risk of flooding; and (3) to assess the potential of an integrated catchment based approach to flood risk management linking the public and institutions.
