This year the SNIFFER conference explored what the climate emergency means for Flood Risk Management with contributions from youth climate strikers as well as policy and planning experts from the public sector. Click here for the conference report. As part of the event, CREW coordinated a thought-provoking and action-orientated ‘Spark’ talk session that highlighted research innovation in Flood Risk Management. This blog captured the key points.
Twice a year, CREW brings together all relevant stakeholders of each of the four strategic work themes to discuss strategic as well as project-specific questions and to exchange on key aspects related to the theme, including recent scientific and policy developments. On 22nd March 2019 CREW held the biannual meeting for the Flooding and Coastal Erosion theme at Discovery Point in Dundee.
Every year on 22nd of March, we celebrate World Water Day. This year, The Centre for Expertise on Waters (CREW) and the James Hutton Institute, with the financial support of the Scottish Government, and in partnership with the University of Stirling and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, organised an event around this year’s UN theme of “Leaving No one Behind”.
