Flood Communication and Education (and Fun!)
Floods matter; they matter a lot. People’s whose homes are inundated will remember for the remainder of their lives; landscapes are changed forever; regional and national economies suffer. And yet, floods are also enormously complex; they require an understanding of climate, hydrology, hydraulics, mapping, community values and vulnerabilities and of course regulations. Climate change only increases this complexity, by making many of the inputs to a flood plan uncertain.
Flood risk reduction relies on government officials and private citizens making good decisions. This is not possible unless they truly understand the risks flood might pose to their communities. Ebbwater works with its clients to act as a science-to-english translator for flood issues. We help turn technical documents into simple text and graphics that can be used to communicate to decision-makers and the public. We help government staff communicate with elected officials. We also make flood planning and management fun!
