Run by Rose Pritchard
2019 will see an entirely new event which will benefit both trade shows and conferences, with a big overlap in interest. IRRIGEX, the event for the UK irrigation industry will run alongside FLOODEX.
To facilitate this we have to move earlier in the year, from May to February, so this means moving to 2019 and then annually thereafter and will be run in cooperation with the UK Irrigation Association.
A course for scientists, engineers and managers who influence land and water issues within river basins, for whom a deeper understanding of integrated river basin management would enhance their own specialist stakeholder roles. Upon completion of the course delegates will:
• Have a comprehensive understanding of integrated river basin management
• Have the capacity to formulate integrated river basin management objectives and understand how to balance conflicting objectives
This year, The Rivers Trust’s Spring Conference will focus on delivering a Natural Capital approach to adapt our ecosystems to climate change.
The conference will explore ways in which we can manage land to increase infiltration and water availability for people and the environment, and create more resilient catchments.
This seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss policy priorities for natural capital, and the role that business, local authorities and the wider range of stakeholders can play in delivering greater protection for the environment.
Our first annual network event is for businesses, creative thinkers, and practitioners; for those who want to create an impact in the water and environment sector and share our ambition for putting the North East at the heart of the global market in water technology innovation.
The day will provide industry and government insight, cutting-edge innovation, real life examples and inspiring talks from those within and influencing the water and environment sector in the North East and beyond.
An inclusive event hosted by Norfolk Rivers Trust, Anglian Water and Anglian Central Regional Flood and Coastal Committee
Wider events purpose: Sharing evidence, good practice and helping embed learning at a catchment scale and; Building future relationships between communities, institutes and partnerships
Shared goals for this visit – to be agreed by CP, RFCC, AW, farming/land management community
This conference focuses on priorities for flood and coastal erosion risk management in England.
The agenda includes keynote addresses from Matt Crossman, Team Leader, National Infrastructure Commission; Catherine Wright, Director of Digital and Skills, Flood & Coastal Risk Management, Environment Agency and a senior speaker confirmed from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Rivers and their catchments are characterized and influenced by a range of physical, chemical and biological processes. These processes are in a constant state of flux, varying across both temporal and spatial scales, and are regulated or enhanced by anthropogenic activities, including but not limited to water abstraction, weir creation/removal, dredging and agriculture. Understanding of the hydromorphological and ecohydrological impacts of these activities/ approaches and so, wider socio-economic implications, remains largely rudimentary.
