The article discusses the regeneration efforts for the Thames Gateway in London, England. The Gateway has played a significant role in the economy of England as it helps meet demand from London's growing population, businesses and jobs. A study called Thames Estuary 2100 project is being conducted by Great Britain's Environment Agency in order to discover what flood defenses are required to protect the area over the next century. Meanwhile, the Thames Gateway London Partnership and the EA commissioned a strategic flood-risk assessment for the London part of the Gateway in 2004, designed to provide an analysis of the main sources of flood risk.
