Event Description

From the Floodplain Conference website:

The theme of the conference is “Integrated Floodplain Management: creating safer, stronger communities,” referencing Toowoomba Regional Council’s extensive program of flood studies and plans aimed at delivering a “Safer, Stronger, More Resilient Region.”

The FMA Conference has been held annually for over 50 years and is the most respected flood risk management event held in Australia.

The Conference is for anyone interested in making our communities more flood safe. It will bring together over 350 flood professionals and community members with interests in floodplain risk management. Attendees will include Commonwealth, State and Local Government representatives, research organisations and education providers as well as consultants, engineers, land-use planners, emergency responders and community volunteer organisations.

For the first time, the 2022 Conference will be hybrid and include an online component for those attendees that are unable to travel. The Conference will include outstanding Australian and International speakers, plenary and concurrent presentations, a Local Government Councillors’ session, field trips addressing floodplain issues in Toowoomba and surrounding areas, as well as great networking events.
