Surface water future risk and investment needs

External research by Sayers & Partners on the scale of investment necessary to address surface water flooding

Tagged: Water & Floods

This new research by Sayers and Partners – commissioned as part of work on the surface water flooding study – explores the scale of investment that will be needed to address surface water flooding management in England, in light of the changing climate and population growth.

It explores the relationship between investment and surface water flooding risk up to 2100, with a focus on the residual risks that may exist by the 2050s and the investment that may be needed from now up to that point.
