Watch: Understanding the Environment Agency’s resilience programme

This session was first broadcast at NCE’s Future of Floods conference.

Hear from Environment Agency FCRM strategy and national adaptation director Julie Foley about the Agency’s proposals for adaptive pathways for resilience.

The project, which forms part of the Environment Agency strategy for 2100, proposes to help communities better manage floods by creating flood plans and defence assets which can be developed and added to over time.

Foley explains more about what adaptive pathways are and how local authorities, flood planning designers and asset managers can use these methods to better prepare for the future of flooding.

She also goes into detail on how communities can become more resilient and will be better prepared to manage the future climate challenges by adopting adaptive solutions.
