Abstract. Floods remain a wicked-problem and are becoming more destructive with widespread ecological, social and economic impacts. The problem is particularly acute in modified formerly pristine, mountainous river-catchments where plausible assumptions of risk-behaviour relevant to flood exposure and vulnerability are crucial for robust early warning system development. In particular more focused conversation with the community-at-risks is required. In such context, we advocate the use of a SMART-approach to facilitate bottom-up initiatives to facilitate development of inclusive and purposeful early warning systems that benefit the community-at-risk by engaging them every step of the way along with including other stakeholders at multiple-scales of operations.

Short summary
Floods continue to be a wicked problem that require developing early warning system with plausible assumptions of risk behaviour, with more targeted conversation with the community-at-risk. Through this paper we advocate the use of a SMART-approach to encourage bottom-up initiatives to develop inclusive and purposeful early warning systems that benefit the community-at-risk by engaging them at every step of the way along with including other stakeholders at multiple-scales of operations.
