Some of you may have received an email from me on this, but if not please fill in our survey on Drought Risk Communication!
It’s been an exceptional start to the summer, and in this time of unprecedented water demand, we’d like to take the opportunity to ask you about your experiences of drought status and risk communication in recent years.
We have developed a survey aimed at all those who produce drought (or dry weather) communications, as well as those that receive them or pass them on to their communities and networks. We would be very appreciative if you could take the time to participate so that we may, for the first time, comprehensively review the current methods of drought risk communication in the UK. We anticipate that this survey will take no more than 15 minutes of your time.
We’d also like to encourage you to pass this survey on to your colleagues, as well as any stakeholder groups that you work with, in order for us to get as broad a perspective on this issue as possible. The results of the survey will be used to inform the design and content of drought risk communications in the future.
This survey is part of the RADAR project (Reviewing Approaches for communicating Drought status And Risk), funded by Defra, the Environment Agency, and Welsh Government (in conjunction with Natural Resources Wales), and is led by researchers at the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and the Open University. You can find out more about the RADAR project here: https://www.ceh.ac.uk/our-science/projects/radar
We hope you are able to contribute to the survey,
The RADAR team
