*FRIAR 2020 Status Update*

Please note that following the recent events on the Coronavirus pandemic and with the main objective to preserve the well being of our delegates, WIT has decided to postpone the FRIAR 2020 conference until after the summer break. The conference was due to be held 11-13 May 2020 in Valencia, Spain and will now be held 28-30 September 2020 in Valencia, Spain.


The meeting aims to attract researchers, academics and practitioners actively involved in improving our understanding of urban water systems and flood events.

Flooding is a global phenomenon that claims numerous lives worldwide each year. Apart from the physical damage to buildings, contents and loss of life, which are the most obvious, impacts of floods upon households and other more indirect losses are often overlooked. These indirect and intangible impacts are generally associated with disruption to normal life and longer term health issues. Flooding represents a major barrier to the alleviation of poverty in many parts of the developing world, where vulnerable communities are often exposed to sudden and life-threatening events.

As our cities continue to expand, their urban infrastructures need to be re-evaluated and adapted to new requirements related to the increase in population and the growing areas under urbanization. Topics such as contamination and pollution discharges in urban water bodies, as well as the monitoring of water recycling systems are currently receiving a great deal of attention from researchers and professional engineers working in the water industry. This conference also considers these problems and deals with two main urban water topics: water supply networks and urban drainage.

FRIAR 2020 will generate an improved understanding of emerging flood risk management and urban water management challenges, drawing on the expertise of numerous disciplines and considering a range of responses. The conference provides a rich forum for the development of innovative solutions that can help bring about multiple benefits toward achieving integrated flood risk and urban water management strategies and policy.

Papers presented at this conference, as all other meetings run by the Wessex Institute, are archived in the Institute eLibrary (www.witpress.com/elibrary) and permanently and freely available to the international community.
