Our team has created a new hub for research into the social effects of flooding. Flooding – a social impact archive provides a gateway to research materials and data produced from our own and other studies carried out at Lancaster University, UK. The website provides information about how to undertake, analyse and use social research in flood policy and practice.
Flooding – a social impact archive centres on our team’s three major projects which have researched the effects of floods on the lives of children and adults: Hull Floods Project (2007-2009), Hull Children’s Flood Project (2007-2011) and Children, Young People and Flooding: Recovery and Resilience (2014-16). In addition to peer-reviewed publications, these projects have generated videos, pictures, stories and games that express the social effects of flooding. The new website collates and makes these and other Lancaster University flood research materials available to both authorities and the public as an open access resource.
