S.A. (Steven) Forrest, MA

PhD Researcher 'Flood Resilience'


My PhD research focuses on flood resilience in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. This research analyses the interactions between different actors at the local level, and the roles/responsibilities of the local state, civil society and the market in flood resilience. My research in the Netherlands explores pluvial flooding in urban areas and the roles/responsibilities of local actors and members of the community. The research in the UK (predominantly in England) focuses on the influence of local actors and ‘flood groups’ (civil society organisations) on community resilience to flooding. The institutional, social and legal tools/arrangements influencing flood resilience at the local level will be analysed in both instances.My previous role was as an environmental/social sciences consultant in London where my projects included work on community flood resilience, flood risk communication, policy evaluation, and in assessing the social impacts of energy infrastructure.I was awarded the Sustainable Society Impact Award in 2016 for this video explaining my research using Lego:
