Sea levels are rising, climate is changing, population is growing, risk is increasing and the cost of recovery following floods is becoming unsustainable. Who can the nation turn to deal with this dire situation? Civil Engineers of course! Especially civil engineers who understand flood risk and how to design resilient, sustainable infrastructure.
