Managing flood risk and our water resources: adapting and increasing our resilience to climate change

Climate change will increase the frequency and magnitude of climate extremes and cause sea level rise. This requires urgent action to adapt and enhance our resilience to the twin threats of increasing flood risk and the likelihood of more frequent droughts, as well as the secondary effect of rising sea levels on the resilience of infrastructure around the coast. At JBA, we focus on supporting clients to be aware, adapt, respond and recover from these diverging conditions, encouraging and delivering effective water management and integration.

Pressures from our rapidly growing population compound the impacts of climate change. The management and resilience of our water resources is fast becoming a critical theme affecting Ireland. Our water resources team is expert in translating hydrological and hydrogeological information, alongside climate change projections to support the process of planning, development and use and protection of our precious water resources. For both water quantity and quality, across all sectors.

  • Site-specific Flood Risk Assessment (FRA)
