Adaptation and resilience

  • An integrated approach to water resilient cities - Adam Hosking, Global Solution Director, Jacobs
  • How green bonds can help fight climate change - Ines Faden da Silva, Treasurer Tideway
  • Natural capital in the city infrastructure - John Ferry, Senior Consultant,  Jacobs
  • A proactive approach to adaption and resilience - Helena Henao Fernandez, Deputy Programme Director TEAM2100
  • The energy revolution and meeting Zero Carbon targets in London - Stephen Horrax, Divisional Director, Jacobs

A full agenda will be confirmed soon.

The event will finish with a drinks reception, and a White Paper will be prepared capturing the discussion and recommendations arising.
