Code of practice for property flood resilience, Edition 2, published by CIRIA in 2020, defines property flood resilience as: ‘Flood resilience related to buildings within the curtilage of a property.’
The National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England, Glossary, published by the Environment Agency in 2020, defines resilience as: ‘The capacity of people and places to plan for, better protect, respond to, and to recover from flooding and coastal change. Places can achieve this by: making the best land use and development choices, better protecting people and places, responding to and recovering from flooding and coastal change whilst all the time adapting to climate change.’
