The Developer Live: Risk and Resilience
Event Description

The Risk & Resilience conference will bring together 200 development directors, architects, Local Authority planning and regeneration teams, scientists and sustainability experts to explore how to successfully develop our cities in response to rising environmental risks.

Learn how to design for a climate emergency using nature-based solutions to create resilient cities through adaptation and redevelopment, places where people don’t just survive, but thrive.

Find out how UK cities are investing in resilience as part of their regeneration plans and adopting policy you need to know about

Experts from DEFRA will discuss the critical contents of the Draft Environment Bill, including the mandate to increase biodiversity by 10 per cent on all sites, making this a timely event not to be missed.

Seize this chance to future-proof your projects to meet new regulatory benchmarks such as Biodiversity Net Gain. Find out how innovative SuDS and flood-proofing projects can unlock investment and overlooked sites.
