How can we be better prepared for the impacts of climate change
The new FCERM Roadmap was launched during the Flood and Coast conference in 2022. It directly supports the implementation of the £5.2 billion capital investment programme in England which will better protect many hundreds of thousands of properties from flooding and coastal erosion by 2027.
Creating climate resilient places
Creating climate resilient places lies at the heart of the FCERM strategy. Its vision is for “a nation ready for, and resilient to, flooding and coastal change – today, tomorrow and to the year 2100”.
It was an amazing achievement to receive the Climate Resilient Places Award at this year’s Flood and Coast conference, on behalf of the South West PFR Pathfinder team. An excellent example of what can be achieved by adopting a collaborative one team approach.
An innovative approach
The three PFR Pathfinder projects are the latest examples of investment by Defra and the Environment Agency to create tools and inform FCERM policy that serve as a legacy and a platform for the wider rollout of society’s pursuit for climate resilience. Through the South-West Pathfinder, we now have a truly innovative approach to raising awareness of how we can adapt, respond and recover from flooding.
The challenge now is to build upon the benefits that these projects have generated. We need a concerted effort now to realise the benefits and build on these foundations in our pursuit of climate resilience.
