Poem Focus: Flood Prevention
Liv's poem is based on the incredible work of Somerset County Council, Somerset Wildlife, Trust and Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group. Adapting the Levels is a partnership project dedicated to empowering the communities of the Somerset Levels to take action on climate adaptation. Somerset is on the UK’s frontline of climate change, facing increased risks from river flooding, drought and sea-level rise. The project works with communities to highlight the need for climate adaptation and the role nature can play, helping create a shared vision for the future.
