National Conference: Adaptation & Climate Change


Published by Andrew Eagles for Sustainable Homes in Housing and also in Care and Support, Central Government, Communities, Education, Environment, Local Government

Sustainable Homes and partners present a one-day National Adaptation conference investigating the research and action being taken to reduce the likelihood and impacts of flooding, overheating and water shortages.

We are all aware of the damaging impact the recently flooding has had on thousands of homes.  This is a growing problem. Malcolm Tarling. Spokesman, Association of British Insurers has commented “We are seeing an increase in the frequency of these large scale events. Getting a month's worth of rain in 24 hours is becoming the norm."
