Flood Disaster Management Conference: Building resilience
Flooding caused by a series of storms in winter 2015/16 damaged up to 16,000 homes in England and cost the UK economy £3 billion. An Environmental Audit Committee report later concluded that “there has been a lack of effective long-term strategic planning about how to manage flood risk”.
In response to criticism, the Government announced a record £2.5 billion to fund flood defences and protect 300,000 more homes by 2021. But critics argue this investment will not be enough to protect vital infrastructure from the increasing risk of heavy rainfall and other extreme weather events.
Join us for the Flood Disaster Management Conference where leading experts will explain how communities can build resilience against the threat of flooding and climate change. Identify opportunities for public sector bodies to collaborate over flood planning, understand what can be done to reduce the risk of flooding and ensure your organisation has a robust plan in place.
