Flood Watch Social Impacts Research Brief

Filetype[PDF-790.98 KB]


  • Description:
    The Community Flood Watch Project (Flood Watch), coordinated by the Science and Resilience Inst​itute at Jamaica Bay (SRIJB) and New York Sea Grant (NYSG) in partnership with NYC Emergency Management and the NYC Mayor’s Office of Resiliency (MOR), uses civic science contrib​utions to collect photographs of tidal flood events, including date, time, depth, duration, and flooding source. Buildin​g off the community engagement initiated through Flood Watch, MOR, SRIJB, and NYSG recently partnered with social science researchers at the USDA Forest Service to understand the scope of social impacts of tidal flooding on the communities and delivery of city services in high-flood-risk neighborhoods. The purpose of this pilot research was to develop and test a methodology for gathering qualitative accounts of the impacts of tidal flooding and the ways in which communities have adapted to living with water, while gaining insights into the experiences of Flood Watch participants in select communities to inform further program development in other coastal New York City communities.
