Be a part of this historic delegation

The Global Center for Climate Resilience is proud to announce the US-UK Resilience Forum, to be held Monday, September 30, through Friday, October 4, 2019, at the University of Oxford.

The US-UK Resilience Forum explores British expertise in resilience using case studies and field experiences around flood risk management initiatives with a special focus on how resilience can be financed. Operating out of historic Oxford University, the delegation will have a day focused on measures to mitigate River Thames flooding through engineered and natural solutions, a visit to the world-famous HR Wallingford Physical Modeling Center and a visit to the Satellite Applications Catapult.

A registration fee of $1950 covers lodging, most meals, in-country transportation, venue and admin costs. Airfare is not included and is the responsibility of each delegate.
