Events Calendar

As well having events of our own, the Water Resources East Team are involved in speaking at conferences as well as attending workshops and external events of our partners.

Below is a list of where you can find us, opportunities to engage and network with key stakeholders, and information on the type of events we’re involved in.

  • 5th December: Participating

    Water Resources: Are we fit for 2050?

    Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management, London 9.00 – 17.00

    Members of our Technical Steering Group will be joining this conference which aims to provide an overview of the current issues driving water resource regulation and an insight into advances and innovation in methods of supply and demand analysis, from PR19 to developments for PR24.

    The day will explore how water users in agriculture, power and navigation sectors view their future resource needs and will include an environmental perspective, including the role of natural capital. It will then explore how future regulation and trading arrangements could optimise resources beyond traditional company boundaries and assess the potential for more novel solutions such as effluent reuse.

  • 12th December: Speaking

    Norfolk: A world class environment

    Kings Centre: Norwich 9.00 – 16.00

    Independent chair, Henry Cater, and chair of WRE communications and engagement, Martin Collison, will be speaking at this free conference which brings together stakeholders from the environment, farming and tourism sectors to explore the challenges and opportunities which should be addressed locally in response to the Government’s 25-year Environment Plan.

    Martin will be presenting WRE as a case study for embracing an holistic approach to water management, showcasing some of WRE’s key strategies and working methodologies, and how it can deliver sustainable and resilient outcomes in the East of England.

    The conference will focus on establishing new partnerships to coordinate the development of an Environment Plan in the East which will be a vital tool in prioritising initiatives and securing funding in the future. The newly published Agriculture Bill makes it clear that environmental outcomes will be central to future funding of agriculture, and the event will look at ways we can measure and deliver those outcomes in Norfolk and Suffolk.

    The day is hosted by the Norfolk Rural Strategy Steering Group, supported by Norfolk County Council, and features speakers from the National Farmers Union, University of East Anglia, Broads Authority alongside a range of case studies showcasing partnership working across these sectors to inform future thinking.
