Designing flood resilience

Record and share the location of features that contribute to flood resilience in your local area.

What you need to do

Search the internet and explore websites of Local Government departments or authorities responsible for specifying flood resilience strategies in your city or local area (If you live in an area where flooding isn’t an issue, conduct additional research and identify an area or city that has established strategies to increase flood resilience).

Based on your research, explore your local area and identify features in your area that contribute to flood resilience. If you’re able, photograph, sketch or record video of the feature, making sure you provide a description and then share with the Monash Water for liveable and resilient cities group on Flickr (You can also use any of the other image-hosting services listed on the Social media and tools page of FutureLearn).

Add to the map the location of a feature that contributes to flood resilience

Return to this step and then within the Comments, enter the name and location of the feature with a brief description.

Contribute to the discussion by reviewing two or three locations submitted by other learners and commenting on their entry, making sure you provide constructive feedback and commentary.
