Innovative action to increase flood resilience

3rd November 2022 News

A new animation has been created to promote the benefits of West Yorkshire Flood Innovation Programme (WY FLIP) since it began a year ago to increase resilience to flooding and climate change in the region.

Ambassador for WY FLIP and Deputy Leader of Calderdale Council, Councillor Jane Scullion, launched the animation at Yorkshire Integrated Catchment Solutions Programme’s (iCASP) annual event ‘Confluence’ on 22 September. 

She highlighted the importance of work to increase resilience to flooding risk and other impacts of climate change through not only traditional methods but also ambitious, new and innovative ways of working.

WY FLIP was launched in November 2021 by the region’s five lead local flood authorities including Calderdale Council, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, University of Leeds and the Environment Agency – to work at catchment levels across administrative boundaries. 

Currently, 12 projects within WY FLIP are being developed which tie into the programme’s five key themes and include cross-cutting elements.
