Description

With large-scale flooding becoming more prevalent across the entire UK it is clear that it is not as easy as implementing the desired change we require for the UK with the press of a button. We need to understand where the key challenges lie and how we are going to overcome some of these challenges. This webinar looks at some of the environmental, social and economic challenges to the UK becoming entirely flood resilient. We will also review industry research work projects that are currently ongoing and recently completed in order to better understand what is being done.
