Karn commented on Community Disaster Response

Some great points here. We were inspired by the flood wardens scheme in the UK to propose the Flood Action Group idea (https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/urban-resilience/ideas/set-up-flood-action-groups). It's a great way to involve the community in the decision making process. Not only can the flood wardens help raise awareness within the community of issues relating to flooding, but they can enable more open communication between technical experts and community members.

Hi Frank,

Thank you for your message. We're delighted to have you on board, as this is exactly the kind of support and network that this idea needs. I'll add you as a contributor to this idea, and let's work together through the next phases of the challenge to develop this idea further.
