Translating the complexities of flood risk science using KEEPER—a knowledge exchange exploratory tool for professionals in emergency response
Within flood risk management (FRM) decision-making, there is a growing interest in participatory approaches to engage and integrate stakeholder expertise. This paper reports on the construction of a geographic information system-based flood risk assessment tool, KEEPER—a Knowledge Exchange Exploratory tool for Professionals in Emergency Response. An iterative methodology was used to engage emergency professionals throughout the research process, allowing a mixing of scientific and professional expertise in the co-production of KEEPER. This paper argues that participation is essential both for supporting pragmatic flood research and as a means of enhancing communication across traditionally divided communities.
