Tidal flooding from the River Avon has the potential to cause severe damage to the city centre. Bristol’s Central Area Flood Risk Assessment (CAFRA) predicts that the current trend of rising sea levels will accelerate due to the impact of climate change, causing the likelihood of tidal flooding in central Bristol. A strategy is being developed to recommend an adaptive programme, identify when flood risk management interventions are needed and examine how they will be funded.

The Urban Integrated Diagnostics project promotes research and innovation initiatives that help to improve the city’s health, well-being and prosperity as they face up to challenges of modern urban living. The Bristol ‘pilot’ project will bring citizens together with researchers, local authorities and partners from business and the voluntary and community sector aimed at investigating the very real challenges facing the city across four areas: mobility and accessibility, health and happiness, equality and inclusion, and tackling dependency on fossil fuels. Bristol will learn from other pilot cities of York, Leeds, Newcastle & Gateshead, and Birmingham.

Resilience planning (resilience of complex adaptive systems / social-ecological systems) goes beyond just hazard resilience. Includes transitioning to ecological, social, economic and governance resilience and sustainability at the local watershed community level. Community-based approach requires increasing literacy of resilience science (including ecological and social systems/ecosystem services), integrates local ecological knowledge with expert knowledge, creates a shared community story and local green map, and adaptive management/governance approaches with learning feedbacks.
