Managing the risks from climate change on contaminated land

Gain an insight into the tools available to help practitioners assess and explore the risk management impacts of climate change on contaminated land projects.

Registration for this event is now closed 

Climate change continues to be a global challenge requiring swift action to avoid potentially devastating consequences. Rising temperatures, seas levels and other changes in the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events propose significantly higher elements of risk when managing contaminated land projects.

The Ministry of Defence developed the Climate Impacts Risk Assessment Methodology (CIRAM) to identify the risks to infrastructure systems posed by climate change and identify actions to maintain, optimise and increase capabilities and resilience.

Join us at this webinar to learn how CIRAM is being deployed in our sector to assess and manage risks in contaminated land projects. How are climate change risks being managed in major projects and is industry getting better at managing the impact of flooding to coastal landfills? The webinar will also cover the SCOPAC Coastal Landfills Study which examines the impact of flooding and erosion to coastal landfills.
