Supported by the Environment Agency and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology Flood Risk Management: Managing Extreme Weather, promises to explore how best to prepare for the increasing frequency of floods and adverse weather conditions.

The one-day conference, which takes place at The Queens, Leeds, on 30 October, aims to offer practical advice and guidance to prepare for, respond to and recover from future flood emergencies and extreme weather.

Expert speakers, including Professor David Balmforth from the Inter-Institutional Panel on Flooding, the Institution of Civil Engineers and Dr Swenja Surminski, senior research fellow at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics and Political Science, will discuss options for investment and flood risk insurance after the Statement of Principles expires.
