Environment Minister John Griffiths to host a summit to improve flood resilience today
ENVIRONMENT Minister John Griffiths will be hosting a major summit in Cardiff today, to improve flood resilience in Wales.
The summit will bring together the Welsh Government, local authorities, the Met Office, Environment Agency Wales, Dwr Cymru, emergency services and other key partners — all of whom have an important role to play in managing flood risk in Wales and responding to flooding incidents.
Mr Griffiths said: "Today's summit provides an opportunity for the Welsh Government and its key partners to take stock of progress in managing flood risk and coastal erosion and to actively consider opportunities for further improvements and joint working.
"What we need is early planning and preparation so we are ready to cope with the challenges ahead."
