Recent years have seen the introduction of a range of landscape interventions to help mitigate the level of flood risk upstream of flood-affected communities by emulating natural phenomena – so called Natural Flood Management (NFM). The strength of evidence for the effectiveness of each type of intervention or group of interventions in the landscape often remains incomplete or debated. With this meeting the British Hydrological Society seeks to present some key findings from the previous and ongoing science, and highlight where further research is needed.
The next Dam Removal Europe seminar will take place on the 22-23 of May 2019 in Pärnu, Estonia!
River Rally provides an excellent opportunity to share your experience with a broad audience. Do you have a proven approach or innovation that could help achieve healthy rivers and engage communities in solving water problems? Are you interested in delivering a workshop that is designed to transfer success stories or lessons learned, includes a combination of instruction and hands-on skill building, and will give participants new knowledge they can apply to their work? If so, we need you. Submit a proposal to present a workshop in Cleveland!
The theme for the 22nd International Riversymposium is ‘Resilient Rivers’.
River resilience is the capacity of our rivers and communities to recover from disturbances, like extreme weather events, to a healthy state. The road to resilience can be a complex journey with the interdependence of environmental, social and economic outcomes.
This year’s Riversymposium will showcase innovative programs, host interactive sessions and celebrate success from around the world that are transforming their rivers into resilient rivers.
Following on from the successful event this year, with 570 registered events taking place, WFMD are aiming for 1000 events in 2020.
