Webinar: In a Changing World, Can we adapt to Live with Flooding?

Once again this winter we have seen flooding have an impact on communities, homes and buildings. But what exactly can we do, how is the Government responding and what support is there?

In a future where we face warmer, wetter winters and intense summer storms, how do we better adapt to the unfortunate prospect of more homes and buildings being flooded, and what exactly is the UK Government planning on doing?
