Flood Hazard Management: British and International Perspectives

By John Handmer | Go to book overview

international research on these issues would be profitable.

Despite its various deficiencies a substantial body of social science literature exists which could have direct policy implications. A multi-disciplinary researcher attitude is important so that the experiences of apparently unrelated fields can be brought to bear on a particular problem. Finally, whatever the quality and relevance of research unless considerable effort is employed to ensure that research results are translated into policy even the most applied work may fail to have any impact.
