Interesting session this morning with Environment Minister @pow_rebecca & @EnvAgency CEO @JamesBevanEA speaking on the #Environment Act & the focus on #Flooding going forward. Great to hear that surface water #Flooding will be getting more attention! #FloodAndCoast2022 pic.twitter.com/NBQDgQbrGe— Victoria Zeybrandt (@VicZeybrandt) June 7, 2022
“Acting local - Thinking global”. This afternoon we’re exploring how Natural Flood Management tools are being developed to open up access to funding and deliver “no-regrets” outcomes at scale, following discussions at #COP26. #FloodAndCoast2022 #Flooding pic.twitter.com/xbwYYRaVeJ— Victoria Zeybrandt (@VicZeybrandt) June 7, 2022
Really interesting learning about coastal erosion as part of #FloodAndCoast2022 today. Karen Thomas @CPE_NandS gave a great presentation outlining differences between investment in #Flooding and #Coastal erosion, making note of what is needed and what they are going to do. pic.twitter.com/aeMhuqrPjf— Victoria Zeybrandt (@VicZeybrandt) June 7, 2022
Great session this morning exploring Landscape Scale #ClimateAdaptation. We’ve learnt about River Severn, partnerships, #ClimateFinance and multi-sector approaches to #Adaptation. #FloodAndCoast2022 pic.twitter.com/TIVcEMIFE5— Victoria Zeybrandt (@VicZeybrandt) June 8, 2022
Really interesting to learn about #Rivercraft. By using #Minecraft we can educate and inform the younger population of #Flooding, #ClimateChange & various water solutions. Engaging the community and younger generations is key to creating a resilient community. #FloodAndCoast2022 pic.twitter.com/11rQ3SZ79Q— Victoria Zeybrandt (@VicZeybrandt) June 8, 2022
