Jean-Francois Dulong

Jean-Francois has 7 years’ experience in this field as the policy lead for flood & coastal risk management at the Welsh Local Government Association and Chair of the Wales Coastal Groups Forum.

Jean-Francois has been supporting Local Authorities with the delivery of their flood risk functions and he works closely with the Welsh Government and Natural Resources Wales in the development of policies, strategies and delivery of national initiatives.

His work on the Forum is to consider and drive a more holistic approach to the delivery of coastal management and adaptation as well embedding SMPs as part of the decision process. Jean-Francois champions partnership working and works closely with the FCERM community and other stakeholders because coastal risk management cannot be tackled in silo.
