In response to the recent dramatic change in rain-fall intensity this year’s FEG Symposium will focus on a subject that is urgent, not only for the land-based industries, but for the community as a whole. To ensure that all aspects of the recent problems can be authoritatively covered, a range of expert speakers has been selected so that a base- line of knowledge on the flooding problem can be established. See the link to the programme for full details of speakers and topics.
Tom Nisbet from Forest Research will report on a project that implemented changes in land use and management interventions in a catchment area to reduce the flood risk. His presentation will give details of the scheme and, now that there has been time to evaluate how well it has been performing, he will also comment on its effectiveness.
