Floor Hazard Research Centre: education, training and research
The Flood Hazard Research Centre is at the forefront of efforts to ensure more sustainable protection worldwide for communities at risk from flooding. It seeks to educate communities and governments about their flood risks, to mitigate the effects of these natural disasters and to help governments and other responsible bodies to devise more sustainable protection. The Centre has undertaken cutting edge research into the causes of flood hazards and the impacts on the community, particularly its more vulnerable members. Its flood damage assessment techniques are now used to evaluate flood alleviation plans worldwide, from the Thames to the Yangtse River in China.
