Flood Risk Management: Resilience and Adaptation Event
5th December 2018
This new event has been written based on research directly with Lead Local Flood Authorities and flood risk consultants, and will bring them together with key policy-makers to address a wide range of issues and recent developments in flood risk planning and management.
An expert panel of speakers is currently being assembled and we are delighted that already confirmed to speak are Clare Dinnis, Deputy Director FCRM Strategy, Environment Agency, who will be providing an insight into the new National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy, and Matt Crossman, Team Leader, Flood, Water & Waste, National Infrastructure Commission, who will be outlining the objectives of the UK National Infrastructure Assessment and implications for flood risk management. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the latest insights into these key policies first-hand and put your questions to both speakers.
This informative event will also explore practical issues such as:
- Outlining how the Surface Water Management Action Plan 2018 will better address the risks from surface water flooding and how local authorities are managing this threat
- Infrastructure Resilience: detailing how and where investment is being targeted to improve flood risk management and sustainable drainage
- The Impact of Weather Extremes on the Growth Agenda: examining how changes to flood risk management under the new National Planning Policy Framework will impact on local planning and development
- Considering Flood Risk as part of Planning and Design: the benefits of early engagement and collaborative development
- Innovations in Building Design, including Retrofit measures to adapt to changing climates and mitigate flood risk
