Flooding impacts more people, more often than any other natural hazard in Greater Wellington Region. This is likely to increase in the future due to climate change, so understanding flood risk is more important than ever. One of the ways to do this is by working with communities to understand flood risk so we can help minimise the effects on people, business, and critical infrastructure.
