Practical Solutions for Managing the Effects of Flooding & Storm Intensity on Infrastructure & Local Communities
The Global Risk Report 2018, published by the World Economic Forum, places extreme weather events in the top 3 risks to the world by impact on people, places and the economy. 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 adapt to mitigate the risks.
This one-day conference will look at the regulatory and policy backdrop enabling better flood risk management, including the latest climate projections and changes to FCERM and surface water management, and provide practical strategies to manage the impact of flooding on infrastructure and housing development.
Fully researched and written in discussion with Lead Local Flood Authorities and environmental and flood risk consultants, the programme will provide a mix of presentations, including case studies and new approaches; Q&A discussion; and networking opportunities to enable you to get the most out of your day. You will leave with the information you need to better manage the likely risks from changing weather patterns and achieve a more proactive and integrated approach to flood resilience at a local level.
