National Flood Management Conference 2020

We are pleased to be presenting at the National Flood Management Conference 2020 this week.  Jonathan Cooper will be discussing Nature Based Solutions for Flood Management - Drivers and Benefits, and will cover the following topics:

  • Water Framework Directive and flood management schemes – why this is important
  • Floods Directive
  • Geomorphological design of flood management schemes
  • Nature based solutions for flood risk – examples and benefits
  • SuDs – how natural processes need to work hand in hand with flood schemes and can be an alternative to schemes with low economic business case

 Examples will be drawn from JBA's own portfolio of work, as well as international examples of best practice.
