The Government has recognised flooding as one of the most serious threats facing the country, yet only the next six years of funding for flood-risk management, to 2021, is assured. During the 21CC Policy teams latest work on flooding in November 2016, an expert panel and professional audience explored how the UK can move towards a comprehensive strategy for sustainable flood risk management in the long-term.
