Risks and Disasters: Knowing how much risk you have is one thing; having that risk become a reality is another

Clarity around who owns how much risk is key to helping set the stage for healthy pre-event flood risk management activities. After a disaster strikes, that same clarity helps people decide how to recover given possible shifts in their risk appetite given the event. Credible data, effective communication, and planning are key to aligning risks, rewards, and resources both before and after flood events.
