The last year has seen many parts of the world experience flooding as a result of extreme weather conditions, including regions across the UK. We were delighted to be joined by Caroline Douglass, Executive Director for Flood and Coastal Risk Management at the Environment Agency (EA), for this live briefing to explore how organisations across the sectors can work together to manage flood risks moving forward.

Join us online for your opportunity to:

  • Learn how the 'National flood and coastal erosion risk management strategy' is being implemented alongside the government's broader climate change adaptation and mitigation policies
  • Understand how lessons learnt from recent experiences of flooding might inform resilience planning for impacted communities
  • Discuss the role of cross-sector collaboration to drive innovation in this space, including the use of nature-based solutions
