London Under Water

A panel of experts, chaired by BBC's Evan Davis, will explore the threat of flooding to London’s people & infrastructure.

The discussion will examine how current defence systems will cope with enhanced flood risk to the capital over the next 30 years.

- With £80 billion worth of infrastructure at stake if London did flood. How prepared is the city?

- What is the insurance industry doing to safeguard and manage the risk to capital in the capital?

- Can urban development actually reduce flood risk?

- Can the Thames Barrier cope with the rising sea levels and storm surge predictions?
