KEYNOTE STAGE 2
Integrating water and the built environment to deliver resilience and nature recovery
02 March / 14.15 - 15.00
Two major challenges for the built environment are a combination of drought and deluge: Water shortage, especially in some of our areas of highest population density, is a major challenge to manage. Equally, intense as well as prolonged rain events leading to flooding in both winter and summer are becoming more frequent with development potentially bringing more people into flood risk.
A further associated factor is sewage pollution from storm overflows – a range of a result of conspiring, systemic factors. How can integrated water management solutions deliver against these challenges whilst also helping to recover nature?
