Six Steps to Flood Resilience


The Smarter Resilience, Tools, Technologies and Systems (SMARTeST) developed, tested and integrated innovative small scale measures to increase the flood resilience of the built environment. The Six Steps to Flood Resilience emerged out of the SMARTeST project. The guidance includes advice for the initial surveying of properties, help to identify measures that are most appropriate for individual circumstances, and information regarding the long-term maintenance and operation of protective devices. The guidance also includes comprehensive links to sources of further information and to other useful websites. There are two documents: a shorter piece for property owners is supported by a more detailed guidance document specifically designed for use by local authorities and others responsible for civil protection.
