Event description

Description

The Flood Risk Team at Ambiental would like to cordially invite you to our forthcoming briefing at The British Library in Central London. We will be discussing the technoloies and data solutions for infrastructure, utilitise and insurance.

Recent research shows that rainfall intensities are increasing. This is likely to have a significant impact upon the magnitude and frequency of flood events going forward. As such, the resilience of property, people, assets and infrastructure needs to be re-examined so as to enable improved strategic planning and loss control. New data sources, technologies and methods will also be presented which are being tailored to help risk managers to better predict, and manage, future flooding so as to become more resilient going forward.

We are certain you will get a great amount of value out of this exclusive event and hope you can join us.
