In 2016 the government’s National Flood Resilience Review highlighted temporary flood defences as a solution to protecting assets in some flood situations for a limited time. Many utility companies and local authorities, as well as the Environment Agency, are now investing in temporary defences.

There is currently a great opportunity for learning about use of temporary flood defences, as they have not been in wide use for long and represent a relatively immature form of flood risk management strategy.

The webinar will be presented by Geodesign Barriers, a supplier of temporary flood defence solutions which has a contract with the Environment Agency.
