Location:

With the effects of climate change and increasing storm intensity posing an ever-greater risk to infrastructure and property development, the UK needs to be more resilient to flooding and better able to mitigate the risks.

This one-day conference will look at the regulatory and policy backdrop enabling better flood risk management, provide practical strategies to manage the impact of flooding on infrastructure and housing development and look at practical, integrated approaches to catchment and flood risk planning.

Last year’s event brought together representatives from the Environment Agency, The Met Office, National Infrastructure Commission and several Lead Local Flood Authorities to discuss the new National FCERM strategy and share real life experiences and new approaches. Expert-led presentations, extensive Q&A discussion time and networking opportunities will ensure delegates get the most of out the day.
