Make visible the way citizens, local government authorities, and other agencies involved in the management of water-related risks engage with data on flooding.
Engage intergenerational groups of citizens to produce, circulate and embed data, which incorporates and builds upon pre-existing flood memories and local knowledge of flood risk, to increase community resilience.
Integrate citizen-generated data with other data sources, such as environmental sensors, socio-demographics and risk mapping, in ways that support decision-making and policy-making on flooding.
Facilitate transformations of the data practices of key stakeholders, ensuring community knowledge of the research is accessible to all project stakeholders and beyond.
Translate “waterproof data” into sustainable flood risk governance, through integrating the different work streams, tracking governance changes and promoting a transcultural dialogue on flood data practices.
