Receptor refers to the entity that may be harmed (a person, property, habitat etc.). For example, in the event of heavy rainfall (the source) flood water may propagate across the flood plain (the pathway) and inundate housing (the receptor) that may suffer material damage (the harm or consequence). The vulnerability of a receptor can be modified by increasing its resilience to flooding.
