Dr Lydia Burgess-Gamble (Environment Agency) will be talking about the evidence behind Natural Flood Management. This event is organised by CIWEM Welsh branch and supported by ICE Wales Cymru. Members and non-members welcome.

Lydia started working in the water industry 18 years ago when she undertook a PhD investigating River Restoration project appraisal and monitoring procedures at Queen Mary College, London. She has now been at the Environment Agency for over 15 years in a wide range of Flood Risk Management roles but always with an interest in managing flood risk whilst improving the environment for people and wildlife.
For the last 5 years she has been working in a Flood Risk Research team as a Principal Scientist leading projects on Working with Natural Processes to reduce flood risk. In this role she has developed a Research framework which defines high priority areas of research in this field, and she has also project managed a suite of projects to develop the Evidence Base for Natural Flood Management. She has also worked with NERC to establish the recent Natural Flood Management Research call.
