ICE Flooding 2014

Date of event: 13th May 2014,

Venue:  Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London

The Flood and Water Management Act of 2010 broadened the flood risk management community – empowering an array of key stakeholders to manage their local piece of the national flood risk.

Asset owners, communities, homeowners and local authorities have now joined national policymakers in making decisions and implementing strategies that they hope will lead to a flood resilient country.

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) annual Flooding Conference will connect this wider flood community with engineers, risk analysts and flood professionals – bringing together technical engineering experts with those at the coal face of community defence and resilience in order to share best practice on a sustainable and integrated approach to managing flood risk.

The programme will focus on take-aways from practitioners who have been battling to protect our communities and critical infrastructure in the ongoing floods, as well as showcasing innovative solutions and creative engineering from those at the forefront of flood risk management.

Key themes include:

  • Planning, design and construction: placing flood resilience at the heart of the new built environment
  • Beyond local communities; protecting infrastructure and farmland – local resilience strategies of national importance to ensure problems don’t cascade
  • Maintenance and retrofitting to manage risk
  • Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDs) – addressing the questions of training, maintenance and funding
