The Society will host professionals from across the flood risk management sector on the evening of 8 November for the latest in our series of 21st Century Challenges Policy Forums. These knowledge exchange events aim to broker relationships across disciplines and demonstrate the importance of geographical approaches to many of the major challenges facing the UK.
Achieving sustainable flood risk management in the UK will take place at the Society’s headquarters in Kensington, London, on 8 November.
With government policy on flooding currently under review in response to major floods in recent years, this timely event will consider the contribution of geographical thinking to achieving a comprehensive strategy for flood risk management in the long-term.
An expert panel, featuring leading physical and human geographers and chaired by the BBC’s Environment Analyst Roger Harrabin, will discuss how flood risk management in the UK’s urban and rural environments can be improved, and the relative responsibilities of central and local government, communities and individuals to build resilience.
A set of recommendations that resulted from an expert round table on the geographies of flooding held at the Society earlier this year, will also be launched at the event.
A drinks reception will follow the panel discussion and audience Q&A.
Tickets: £10 | £7 RGS-IBG Members (£7 tickets are available for Chartered Environmentalists and Chartered Scientists.)
Join us for an evening of inspiration and entertainment as six new generation speakers have just 10 minutes each to share their geographical journeys in an illustrated talk.
