(28 January – 10 February 2019) Peter Davids (Belgium) spent two weeks at BOKU Vienna to collect data about the Austrian floodlabel institutional framework. This was done via interviews with flood risk experts with the support of Dr. Thomas Thaler. A floodlabel for houses is currently in development to encourage adaptive behavior of private homeowners. This label is meant to inform homeowners on flood risks and enable implementation of risk mitigation measures to reduce impacts of future hazards events. In future the collected data will be compared to the case studies of the Netherlands and Belgium.

Join paper titled Tailor-made risk communication and advice for homeowners: how we can encourage adaptive behavior in is preparation.
