Bricks and Water 3: Call for Evidence

How can the risks of flooding in England be managed to limit their impact on vulnerable communities and the environment? How can we maximise our resilience against flooding?

Around five million properties in England are at risk of flooding. With increasing global temperatures, rising sea levels and a greater frequency of extreme weather events due to climate change, the risk of flooding in the UK is likely to increase. England’s homes, businesses, and infrastructure are currently not prepared or resilient enough to face these increasing risks and costs.

Policy Connect are gathering evidence to inform our report, and both individuals and organisations are encouraged to respond. We are looking for papers, data or reports to answer our key research questions. We are particularly interested in data, statistics and case studies which show what works and what does not.

This inquiry is chaired by Baroness McIntosh of Pickering with vice-chairs Philip Dunne MP, Rachael Maskell MP and Luke Pollard MP.

It is sponsored by Yorkshire Water and Queen Mary’s University London.
