Thames Estuary Partnership Annual Forum 2019: The tidal Thames in a changing climate

Tuesday, 5 November 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm
Tower of London, St Katharine's & Wapping London EC3N 4AB

Climate change is predicted to dramatically affect the Thames and its stakeholders. Many are working to make the Thames more resilient to climate change, as well as positively changing the river's built and natural environment. Additionally, stakeholders have a responsibility to mitigate their own contributions to climate change. Discussions on the best way forward at this juncture are crucial.

Impacts of climate change are already being experienced in London, Essex and Kent with flooding from increased and heavier rainfall and increased temperatures from living in built-up areas. New research identifies London as the most vulnerable city in western Europe to flooding. Without mitigation, climate change will also expose the city to extreme cold during the winter and drought during the summer. 
 
The Annual Forum is a chance for Thames stakeholders and anyone else with an interest in the Thames, London and/or climate change to listen to key speakers, engage in important discussions and forge connections between different disciplines through this second-to-none network.
