Delegates at this seminar will discuss the challenges for Westminster policymakers, national agencies, local government and key business sectors in safeguarding more than 5 million properties from flood risk. With the Government pledging £540m in emergency financial support, including £270m for the maintenance and repair of existing flood defences and creation of the Business Support Scheme, attendees will assess progress and next steps for flood defences in England as the Environment Agency outlines its 55 priority projects; and the ongoing commitment of maintaining capital investment in the sector up to 2021 - in the context of the potential impact of worsening climate conditions. Planned sessions also focus on safeguarding flood-affected communities and key sectors such as transport and business hubs, further development of national adaptation and mitigation plans, and role of the insurance industry in supporting affected areas.

World Water Summit

The world has woken up to the dangerous consequences of the looming water crisis. Demand is rising rapidly thanks to industrialization, population growth, climate change and the planet's growing need for food, yet nature has decreed that supply is fixed. With agriculture, homes, factories and offices consuming water in ever greater quantities, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is warning that by 2030, nearly half the world's population could face a scarcity of water, with demand outstripping supply by 40%. As water plays a crucial role in all segments of nature, society and economy, access to water will become a fundamental issue to individuals, governments, companies and ecosystems. World Water Summit, will be convened to lead these discussions, bringing three sectors (public/private/NGO) together around a common interest: how to stop talking about the world water crisis and start acting. A high-level audience will study innovative approaches to water policy and management, analyse the tensions around the water/food/energy nexus and identify how countries and companies can make better use of their water resources. Attendees will include the world's leading thinkers on water policy, management, irrigation, technology, economic development, sanitation and hygiene and water-related risks.
