NICG-PC Conference 2017 'Water, Water Everywhere' - Planning for Future Water Management in Northern Ireland.
There is a growing awareness in the UK and Ireland of the need to consider collectively how we balance the competing demands of land use management with the sensitivities of our river catchments. There are many organisations, stakeholders, central and local government agencies, industries and the public who have competing priorities in terms of how we use and manage our water. We also experience increasing pressures from development needs, climate change, economic constraints and the continuing need to meet legislative requirements. The need for an integrated strategic approach to land and water management is never more apparent.
This conference will present the challenges and opportunities we face in Northern Ireland in developing such a strategy. It will look specifically at the Government Polices supporting this approach and best practice examples of opportunities that could be realised at the catchment, regional and local scale offering multiple benefits to all concerned.
This is a great opportunity to hear from expert practitioners about a subject that has increasing relevance for developers, land and property owners, both public and private.
Note: Buffet Lunch @ 12:30hrs is included within the ticket price
