Webinar: Increasing resilience to flooding in a changing climate

The impact of a changing climate on the severity of flooding has been demonstrated by a number of studies over the past decade. Increasing communities and critical infrastructure's resilience to flooding under a changing climate requires the implementation of a portfolio of measures; ranging from non-structural ones such as early warning systems to structural measures such as barriers and flood walls.
This webinar, presented by Darren Lumbroso, Technical Director at HR Wallingford, looks at how the flood resilience of people and assets could be increased based on the success of strategies and measures employed in countries worldwide. Darren focuses on lessons that can be learnt from governments who face significant financial constraints and their approach to providing infrastructure to protect populations from extreme flood events.
