Risk communication, as an integral part of the resilience practice, carry out a crucial role in enhancing the community’s response to climate change. The goal is to trigger effective proactive engagement to mitigate the flood risks. In this study, the local engagement practice assessment framework in flood risk communication is examined. This study ascertained that (1) the community determines how risk information is understood and propagated in a loosely formed network supported by social media; (2) understanding local socio-environmental context is crucial in supporting mutual communication and ensure public engagement among the residents; (3) urban resilience necessitates multiple actors aim to collaborate, mitigate, and achieve communication innovations; the interactive visual tools can assist an effective communication toward effective adaptive capacity. Ultimately, further research issues are identified as the key role of the media and communications in addressing climate change and communication.
