**Press the reminder button to get an email update to join us live**

(?) How do different types of land-use increase river flooding?
(?) Are urban areas more at risk?
(?) How can land-use management reduce river flooding?
(?) What are Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems and why are they important?

On Tuesday 10th January (6:00 pm GMT) we are going LIVE with Dr Ian Pattison from Heriot-Watt University to explore the link between land-use and river flooding. As changes in climate lead to a greater magnitude and frequency of flood events, we will discuss the role of land-use management in increasing and reducing flood risk.

This episode of The Curious Geographer is in collaboration with Time for Geography (The open-access, dedicated video platform for geography and geoscience education) and presented in partnership with Heriot-Watt University
