Let’s not make matters worse
This seminar will consider how the UK can secure essential development of housing and other infrastructure whilst managing flood risk in the immediate term and for future generations. To do this we must apply the ingenuity of many professional disciplines and sectors and in so doing we can deliver multiple benefits. This will include lessons from practices overseas and opportunity to transfer services from the UK to around the world.
