Learning from the 2013/14 floods: Planning for extreme events, London

About this event

The autumn and winter of 2013/14 saw extreme coastal surges, storms and rainfall, causing extensive and prolonged flooding and other damage.

Although this was a season of particular intensity, such events have occurred in different locations for a number of years and may occur more frequently in the future.

This lecture will look at what we can learn from these extreme weather events and how we can plan for the future.
