ICE Flooding 2013 – Developing Flood Resilient Communities

Date of event: 23 May 2013

With the cost of 2012’s widespread floods reaching over £1 billion, the need for those involved in prevention and response to come together with a cohesive and joined-up approach is stark.

ICE Flooding 2013 will focus on developing flood resilient communities – a UK priority following the last 18 months of adverse weather and the devastation caused by flooding.

Offering a practical and achievable approach to improving flood resilience within the UK, delegates will learn what practitioners have actually found to work effectively and share good practice.

The conference will bring together senior level industry professionals to hear detailed case studies covering planning, buildings and urban fabric, and public engagement. Delegates will take away key messages that will help deliver change with insights into how to formulate a coordinated approach in preparing for the future.

The programme will also cover:

  • UK water companies- what can they do to stimulate a wider range of measures for flood risk management
  • Are SuDs effective?
  • Building the urban fabric
  • Why is the UK not retrofitting flooded houses to make them more flood resilient for the future?
