Rachel Burden, Flood & Coastal Risk Manager, Environment Agency

Rachel is Wessex lead on Incident Management and manager of P&SO Somerset and Flood Resilience at the Environment Agency. A key aspect of her role is also working externally with Somerset partners (including the Internal Drainage Boards, Local Authorities and Natural England) to ensure a co-ordinated approach to managing flooding in Somerset, after the devastating floods of 13/14.  

Rachel is responsible for rebuilding the Agency’s reputation externally with senior Somerset officials & politicians and managing the delivery of large flood risk management projects on the ground, as identified in the Somerset Flood Action Plan. She is also the lead on the setting up of the new Somerset Rivers Authority.

Rachel has worked at the Environment Agency for the past 16 years working in a range of flood risk management roles in both national and area teams, including the National Capital Programme Management Service (NCPMS), National Environmental Assessment Service (NEAS) and Area Flood and Coastal Risk Management.
