Urban flood resilience in an uncertain future
University of Nottingham
The project aims to enable the coordinated planning, design and operation of closely coupled urban water systems necessary to achieve transformative change in urban flood risk and water management. It will investigate how planning, design, operation and organisation of both existing and new urban water systems might be envisaged and transformed in order to deliver multiple benefits (including flood resilience) under flood, normal and drought conditions.
Urban resilience to intense rainfall and surface water flooding in a changing climate
July 2018 – June 2021
WATCH THIS SPACE: The flow of goods, people and energy essential to continued economic development are at increasing risk of flood disruption. Models, forecasts, warnings or management strategies for urban surface water flooding are less advanced, and require improved understanding and prediction of surface water flood impacts. The project will help to raise public awareness to, and improve preparedness for and recover from, surface water floods. Two-way public engagements will disseminate knowledge raised in the project as well as collect feedback from the public.
