Managing flood risk in the context of the climate emergency

This year we explored what the climate emergency means for Flood Risk Management with contributions from youth climate strikers as well as policy and planning experts from the public sector. Our attention was on translating the growing momentum into systemic change and identifying new ways of working by learning from successful case studies, new tools and opportunities.

Our official conference report will be available soon. In the meantime, listen to the audio presentations and take a look at some of our conference videos.
