Book here and check out the programme

National policy on flood risk management is increasingly focussed on the benefit of flood risk management interventions to communities and empowering them to take ownership and work with partners.  This presents a challenge to many organisations. The aim of this conference is to explore the details of this approach and by assessing evidence from early lessons from the Flood Resilience Community Pathfinders and other projects. Key themes will include:

1.  To understand the positions of the political parties in relation to insurance, flood risk and communities

2.  To promote and focus on the benefits of community based approaches to flood risk management

3.  To be able to demonstrate how community approaches help to deliver services efficiently, at less cost and through a range of external partnership arrangements that protect staffing and budget lines

4.  Community engagement processes will increasingly become more sophisticated.  We need to learn from best practice and take early lessons from the Flood Resilience Community Pathfinder programme
