Legacies and Challenges - Underground Overground
The 2009 conference was held at the University of Durham over the weekend of 3-5 July. It gathered leading speakers from the public and private sectors who examined floods and water in the light of the anticipated Bill and considered the environmental consequences of the resurgence of coal as part of the energy debate.
