IAHR UK Chapter Annual Technical Meeting

“Resilience to Flooding”

Wednesday 2nd May 2018
Main Council Chamber
Cardiff University Main Building
Park Place
CF10 3AT

The UK Climate Change Risk Assessment 2017 identifies coastal and fluvial flooding as one of the greatest direct climate-related threats for the UK. The estimated 50-100 centimetres sea level rise by 2100 will exacerbate flood risks and accelerate the process of coastal change for exposed communities. The impacts of flooding and coastal change in the UK are already significant and expected to increase as a result of climate change. 
The 2018 IAHR UK Chapter meeting will focus on the research and practice challenges related to flooding resilience that face us now and in the future.
