Commercial and residential property flood resilience conference — November 1, 2016 (UK)

The Centre for Resilience will host Resilience 16 in Watford, England on November 1, 2016.

The past 10 years has witnessed a series of significant flooding events that have impacted thousands of households across the UK. In 2015 Defra, commissioned the private sector to devise an action plan to improve the uptake of flood resilience measures in homes and small businesses. This will be published in the ‘Property Flood Resilience Roundtable Report’.

This highly interactive conference, supported by case studies and insights from stakeholders, will examine the recommendations contained in the report, around issues such as funding, standards, skills and awareness. It will provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss how industry can best implement the recommendations.

Facilitated by the Centre for Resilience, the workshop will provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss and comment on the recommendations of the ‘Property Flood Resilience Roundtable Report.
