Flood Coast 2024

The Event

Flood & Coast is not just an industry-leading annual event. It is an inclusive, diverse community of people working towards a sustainable future. It’s a space to share, debate and celebrate innovative solutions aimed at helping the people and places most at risk from flooding and coastal erosion.

This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever, bringing together industry leaders, policymakers, and communities to tackle the challenges of flooding and coastal erosion.

Produced by CIWEM in partnership with The Environment Agency and The Rivers Trust, the event brings together professionals across the Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management community (#FCERM) to discuss innovative ways of working together and with the communities most affected by flooding and coastal erosion in today’s changing climate.

The event will also include interactive activities and workshops including an exhibition, the Flood & Coast Excellence Awards Dinner, the CIWEM Urban Drainage Group Summer Conference, an Innovation Hub, Property Flood Resilience Training and Certification, Women in FCERM and more.

CIWEM and its strategic partners look forward to welcoming you to Telford in June.
