Grasping the 'Benefits and Challenges of Catchment-Led Water Management' is the subject of a half-day conference on 11th November at Newforge Country Club, Belfast.
Organised by the Professionals Council of the Northern Ireland Construction Group (NICG)/Construction Industry Council NI Region (CICNI) the event will address how the competing demands of land use management and the sensitivities of our river catchments are balanced with increasing pressures from development needs, climate change, economic constraints and the need to meet legislative requirements.
Delegates will hear from a senior representative from the Department of Finance as well as expert practitioners in the field of catchment-led water management. Government policies and best practice examples of opportunities that can offer multiple stakeholder benefits will also be explored.
Speakers include flood risk management and analysis experts Brendan Quigley and Andrew Jackson of RPS; Peter Mullin, Landscape Institutes Policy Consultant for Northern Ireland and Chair of Northern Ireland Environment Links Land Matters Task Force; as well as the sustainable drainage expert Anthony McCloy.
The event will be of interest to anyone in the property development and land owner/management sectors. Pre-payment and registration is essential via the booking link – CLICK HERE. For queries contact William O’Donnell on 07970 225216.
