Water Forum 2019: Climate Risk, Coastal Preparedness, Financial Implications for Hong Kong and Greater Bay Area

March 22 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Beached yachts, torn up pavements, and devastated coastlines – Typhoon Mangkhut once again demonstrated how vulnerable Hong Kong is against climate change. Global warming will worsen flood events by making them more frequent and severe. By 2100, what we call 50-year floods would reoccur every three years or less in Hong Kong. How do we transform Hong Kong into a resilient city under the imminent threat of climate change?

FoE (HK) is pleased to invite you to join them at the 6th Water Forum, titled “Water Forum 2019: Climate Risk, Coastal Preparedness, Financial Implications for Hong Kong and Greater Bay Area”, on 22 March, World Water Day. Experts and stakeholders including academics and industry professionals will share insight and exchange views on how Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area can become climate ready.

Participation is free of charge but registration is required.
