Abstract

Highlights•

Agreement on rural responses to flooding is complex and contested.

Policy can undermine community resilience through paternalist approaches.

Authorities can undermine resilience by ignoring findings from public consultations.

Risk management policy can add to polarisation amongst at-risk rural communities.

Collaborative approaches can empower resilient communities and avoid polarisation.
