The publication of the new national Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk (FCERM) Strategy in England sets out a vision of a nation ready for, and resilient to, flooding and coastal change – today, tomorrow and to the year 2100. This ambition needs to be turned into reality for those at risk of flooding and coastal change both now and with a changing climate. Humber 2100+, a tidal strategy to manage risk against a backdrop of economic growth and development in a sustainable way, is a project leading how we implement that ambition. Humber 2100+ is balancing working in partnership with limited funding to deliver an adaptive pathway to manage flood risk over the coming years, exploring what is necessary for the region to be resilient in a changing climate. Resilience will require a broad spectrum of measures from flood warning and evacuation, through to changes in planning and defence improvements. In the short-term Humber 2100+ will deliver a substantial programme of investment in both defence improvements and resilience measures to enable the implementation of an adaptive pathway in response to rising sea levels and climate change. We are working with our partners and are seeking to have all the technical work (including consultation) completed by the end of 2023 prior to embarking upon an approval and adoption process.
