The 2018 CIWEM Rivers & Coastal Group Conference will bring together professionals from across the industry to explore the symbiotic opportunities between flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM), regeneration and infrastructure development.

Building on the 2017 Spring Conference on Outcome Measures in FCERM, the 2018 conference will showcase some of the most innovative examples of unlocking funding and opportunities for FCERM and using FCERM as a catalyst to deliver wider economic, societal and environmental outcomes. The conference will seek to share experiences from national-scale infrastructure opportunities including HS2, regional initiatives such as the Northern Powerhouse and locally important projects across the UK.


The conference aims to:

  • Showcase examples of how the current FCERM funding regime has been applied in creative ways to align FCERM, regeneration and infrastructure outcomes.
  • Demonstrate best practice in using FCERM as an opportunity to unlock regeneration opportunities, from concept to delivery.
  • Outline opportunities and challenges that infrastructure development presents to achieving FCERM outcomes.

All speaker proposals should be concise and clearly state results, objectives or key components of the paper. They should not exceed 500 words and should contain a clear list of intended presenter(s) and email addresses for all involved. A maximum of two presenters for each paper is allowed.
