The Rivers Trust Conference: Water at the heart of climate resilience

Tuesday 16 March 2021 - 17/03/21

Online

The Rivers Trust joins with Westcountry Rivers Trust to deliver its conference online for the first time. This year’s event will explore climate change, one of the most pressing issues of our age.

Water is the life source of our planet and therefore it must be at the heart of policies and projects mitigating the effects of climate change, and building a society that is better prepared for its consequences. We know that the impacts of the climate crisis will be felt first and most dramatically through the effects on water resources. Changing rainfall patterns and increasing temperatures will result in more floods, more droughts and greater vulnerability to pollution.

As the world continues to experience the devastating effects of the COVID–19 pandemic, it is essential that water and climate are not overlooked in the national conversation, but made a fundamental aspect of a truly green – and we hope, blue – recovery. The work of the Rivers Trust Movement is critical to building our national climate resilience given the predicted impacts on the UK. To build resilience, we need to anticipate what the risks will be, understand what we want to protect and prioritise, and mobilise to accelerate the recovery of our depleted natural water resources.

At this conference, you will hear from speakers who are working on water and climate resilience from a variety of perspectives: environmental charities, government bodies, water companies, corporate partners, and campaigners. It is free to attend and available internationally, so join the conversation and take a step towards a more resilient future.
