Q & A about Flood & Coast 2017 with Clare Dinnis - Deputy Director – Strategy Delivery - Flood & Coastal Risk Management at the Environment Agency. Chair of Conference Advisory Committee.
Why is this event particularly relevant now - to the EA and the wider FCRM community?
Building on the successful debates from last year’s conference, what does the Environment Agency see as the most important areas for discussion this year and why?
What outcomes are you hoping for from the event as a whole?
This year there will be an increased focus on local authorities – why do you feel that this is so important?
Great @floodandcoast event at Telford. Excellent opportunity to share with fellow flood industry professionals.

This conference has provided a great opportunity for industry professionals to come together to be inspired, to listen, learn, discuss and plan for the future.

Flood & Coast 2016 broadened the conversation beyond the FCRM sector to encompass the infrastructure community, which made for a much richer event.
