Placing the flood recovery process

Hugh Deeming

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter argues that, if we want to understand the recovery process then it is essential to think about just exactly what it is that is being recovered. Our case study is a qualitative, longitudinal study of people’s recovery from the floods of June 2007 in Kingston-upon-Hull, UK, in which over 8600 households were affected and one man died (Coulthard et al 2007). The aim of the research was to discover what the long term disaster recovery process was like for people as they struggled to get their lives and homes back on track.
