DEFRA Flood Repairable project
Listen to Judy, a flooded householder, describe how she made her kitchen more resilient and repairable.
Listen to Roger describe how he made his house flood resilient.
Find out how one household was able to carry on as normal straight after their most recent flood.

NERC Co-creating railway flood resilience: applying the science of blue-green-grey infrastructure
- a systematic process for multi-agency identification and prioritisation of flood risk ‘hotspots’ requiring intervention
- a system for determining whether source control measures can be used to achieve greater flood resilience, and if so what these measures should be
- a set of costed blue-green-grey infrastructure for securing greater rail resilience and reduced local flooding
- a set of assessed ES-related benefits
- a proposition exploring potential mechanisms for funding works based on PES and ES approaches
- a case study which shares and captures learning from the project.
