  • Water Resources Strategy for Wales


    Venue: Trevithick Lecture Theatre (T2/09), Cardiff School of Engineering, Cardiff University

    Prys Davies of the Welsh Government will talk about the development of a water strategy for Wales.

    The Welsh Government website says:

    "The Strategy's aim is to ensure that our water resource is resilient, sustainable and is managed to bring benefits to Wales and its citizens.

    This Strategy sets out our long-term policy direction on water. We want to balance the long-term needs of the environment with the need for sufficient, reliable water resources and waste water services available to encourage sustainable growth and job creation.

    We are developing a more integrated approach to managing water as part of our natural resource management. This integrated approach will help to promote the coordinated management of water, land and resources. This will enable us to maximise economic and social benefits in a fair way while protecting vital ecosystems and the environment."

    Joanne Sherwood, of Natural Resources Wales and Tony Harrington of Dwr Cymru Welsh Water will follow with their perspectives on, and input to, the strategy.

    This event has been organised by ICE (suported by CIWEM). Please book your place online, you do not have to be an ICE or CIWEM member.

    This is a free event and all are welcome. Light refreshments will be provided before the lecture begins at 6.00pm.
