Investigating homeownersinterest in property-level flood protection

The inevitability of climate change and its consequences brings on the need to find new ways of
adapting to extreme events, such as floods. One immediate measure would be to make physical
improvements to houses to either prevent their inundation or minimise the damage when flood
waters enter premises. Currently the level of implementation of these measures is low. This paper
aims to assess the willingness of house owners living in flood risk zones to carry out works that
make their homes better protected against flooding.
