Ecobuild 2014: Water, flooding, scarcity and the impacts on business and property
Water, flooding, scarcity and the impacts on business and property is presented by Colin Harrop, Director, Jones Lang LaSalle.
We have taken the availability of fresh water for granted. Today we face issues of both fresh water shortages and threats of flooding. What are the real issues and costs that need to be addressed? What level of investment is required? Does the Water Bill (when is it due as Act?) address these issues? Which areas are particularly water-challenged? Which areas are susceptible to flooding and how will these be affected by climate change? Understanding the issues relating to all aspects of water is vital for long term, effective decision making.
