Today’s flood management challenges demand a new way of thinking, a new way of funding and a new way of forecasting as weather patterns change and urbanisation increases.
Supported by The World Bank, debut event InterFLOOD Asia 11-12 April Suntec, Singapore will bring together the who’s who from the world of flood, hydrology and disaster management, with a world class conference, free international exhibition and free workshop programme, alongside a series of networking receptions and events throughout the week.
Co-located with the fifth edition of InterMET Asia, which brings together the global weather and climate industry, InterFLOOD Asia will embrace the areas which are common to both sectors, as well as focus on specific flood related issues.
The first edition of InterFLOOD Asia is set to make an impressive debut from 11-12 April 2018 at Suntec Singapore.
Running alongside the fifth edition of InterMET Asia, the extreme weather event, InterFLOOD Asia focuses on the challenges and consequences presented by climate change and rapid urbanisation.
A two-day conference, free hands on workshops and an international exhibition of flood management companies will offer professionals from the private, public and economic sectors the opportunity to discover the latest thinking on how to anticipate, mitigate and manage flooding impact.
An insightful two day conference programme includes world class speakers with first-hand experience in forecasting, mitigation and recovery. Key issues which will impact designing, planning and constructing future proof flood infrastructure and early warning systems will be examined via case studies and discussion. Sessions will cover issues such as the role of big data in forecasting and management, structural solutions, non-engineering solutions, technical certification and recovery processes.
The international exhibition hosts a range of leading flood management products, services and technology, including Arup, Royal Haskoning-DHV, Parafoil, FM Global, Ericcson, Geodesign and Satellite Catapult.
Mott MacDonald, the leading global environmental and engineering consultancy, is to participate in InterMET Asia and InterFLOOD Asia – the extreme weather and flood resilience events for South East Asia, Africa, and the Pacific – which will take place in Singapore from 11-12 April 2018.
While the focus of InterMET is the application of hydrology and meteorology to mitigate and manage the increasing impact of extreme weather & climate change on economy and society, and to develop effective early warning systems, the InterFLOOD focus is on innovations in thinking, funding, technology and design of flood resilient critical infrastructure.
