Achieving sustainable flood-risk management in the UK
Tuesday 8 November 2016 Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR
How can the UK move towards a comprehensive strategy for sustainable flood-risk management for the next 25 years, effectively tackling one of the greatest 21st Century challenges for our society, environment and economy?
Expert panellists, drawing on significant insights from geography and other disciplines will question:
- How can we effectively manage the flood-risk in our urban environments and our farmed landscapes?
- How can we build resilience within communities and what role does central and local government play in this?
- What insights can an appreciation of space and place bring to flood-risk management? For example, research on river and landscape dynamics and an understanding of historical change.
The Society will also be launching a summary report of policy recommendations following an expert flooding round-table held in May 2016.
