Answered By: 
The Mayor

My officers are working on producing an update on my Adaptation Strategy. The update will be published this year. Key achievements in 2014 include:

  • Assessing the flood risk to London's rail stations, secondary schools, hospitals and fire, ambulance and police stations.
  • Supporting the boroughs in securing nearly £26m funding for surface water flood risk management schemes that will protect over 6,000 properties when complete.
  • Undertaking research to define, quantify and predict the value of the adaptation economy to London.
  • Working with three Business Improvements Districts to undertake Green Infrastructure Audits.
