Resiliency in planning and flood risk management
Wednesday 7th Sept | 12pm BST
This webinar will introduce you to Jacobs’ broad approach to planning regeneration as well as some of the tools used to help smooth the relationship between the digital and the physical, and more particularly Flood Modeller. A live demonstration will show you how the software allows planners and developers to quickly and easily assess flood risk for resilient planning in the face of climate change.
