As a densely populated island nation, the UK faces a complex mix of challenges from an increasing population, competing land uses and climate change. How can we effectively manage flood risk, protect communities and infrastructure and, at the same time, support new development? A challenge of this magnitude demands a paradigm shift in policy and approaches. Flood adaptive technology is part of the solution, with transformative potential that extends beyond flood risk reduction; it offers a pathway to building thriving communities capable of co-existing harmoniously with the natural environment.
