Join Lee Pitcher, Director of Water and Environment for Europe at Jacobs, to take a look at some tangible examples of how flood modelling has ultimately led to changing lives in communities through economic growth, new jobs and inspiring future generations.
Day-to-day, we use a range of datasets to assess flood risk and decide on the best mitigating options to limit its impact on our communities and assets. This webinar goes beyond the technical application to highlight what our flood modelling work means from a customer perspective and how flood resilience can be a catalyst for lasting positive change.
