iCASP Confluence 2018

  • Date: Friday 15 June 2018

Gratefully borrowing a good title from water@leeds, the Integrated Catchment Solutions Programme (iCASP) one day Confluence takes place on June 15th. The event will bring together 150 people engaged in water catchment issues such as peatland restoration, reducing flood and drought risk, enabling sustainable agriculture and improving water quality. Some will be from professional and practitioner organisations, some from local authorities and policy environments, and others from academia. What iCASP stakeholders have in common is a desire to build the capacity of Yorkshire to act as a leading light on integrated catchment management. The morning will focus on iCASP projects: updates on live projects and launching a call for new projects. The afternoon will offer interactive knowledge sharing workshops on natural flood management, flood alleviation schemes, new climate projections and valuation methodologies for peatland restoration.

Please email icasp@leeds.ac.uk if you’d like to come. We want to get a balance between academics and non-academics so we allocate places on that basis.
