The research presents a brief overview of the published literature concerning household behaviour with regard to installing flood protection measures in the UK; people’s desire and their ability to act are considered, before looking at the literature around public perceptions of arguably more sustainable, ‘blue-green’ approaches to flood-risk management. Interesting contrasts are found in these two different forms of adaptations to address flood risk (‘structural’ and ‘sustainable’); however it is demonstrated that a paucity of research exists in this area, particularly around medium- to longer-term behavioural adaptations to sustainable approaches, and so suggestions are made for further research to help develop our understanding.
