Following the requirements of the (urban) flood risk management-FRM (e.g. 2007/60/EC), the dwellers should become involved in the development of flood resilient cities, however they are in general case not empowered for this task. This calls for the development of methods and tools to improve their engagement. Within this work the methods and tools have been developed that address the decision making process on the resilient built environment and empower the dwellers to actively take their role in FRM and protect their homes. The obtained results indicate a strong need to analyse the dwellers and the built environment as the constitutive elements of a multiscale urban system and aim at the combined application the decision making and the capacity building methods.
