Purpose of the event

The Yorkshire Leaders Board, in partnership with Yorkshire Water and The Yorkshire Regional Flood and Coastal Committee, hosted a flooding resilience forum in York on 14 June 2022.

The key aim of the forum was to raise the profile of flood resilience for its wider strategic benefits, as part of the bigger picture of a response to climate change and a wellbeing economy. To this end, Local Authority and public sector leaders across the region were invited to the event to listen to ideas on how we can support the integration of flood resilience into wider strategy and policy
