Protecting & Restoring Water Resources - The Rivers Trust Spring Conference 2019

This year, The Rivers Trust’s Spring Conference will launch the new Interreg 2 Seas project, PROWATER, and focus on delivering a Natural Capital approach to adapt our ecosystems to climate change.

Our natural capital – the stock of natural assets that we rely on – is under threat from climate change. It is key to the provision of clean and plentiful water and other ecosystem services. In order to continue providing the services we need, we have to restore our ecosystems to become more resilient and adapt.

The Interreg 2 Seas project, PROWATER, aims to implement a natural capital approach to increasing resilience to climate change on a landscape scale. It will explore ways in which we can manage the landscape to increase the resilience of our water resources, increasing its availability for people and the environment, creating more resilient catchments.

The day includes keynote speeches from Ian Dickie (Director, eftec) and Jan Verheeke (Flemish Environment and Nature Council, Belgium) on how a natural capital approach can help us adapt to the various challenges of climate change. Focusing on key aspects of how to facilitate adaptation. For the full programme, please see below.

The conference is free to attend and fully funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Interreg 2 Seas PROWATER project. Fo more information on the project see:

Delegates are also warmly invited to the conference dinner the previous night. Please check the box if you would like to attend and booking details will follow soon.
