A leading member of Royal HaskoningDHV’s catchment management team is preparing to present at the upcoming CIWEM workshop “Integrated catchment delivery for people, farming, floods, droughts and nature” in London this week.
Clare Rodgers, Senior Catchment Management Specialist, will be leading a discussion on the lessons learned from Royal HaskoningDHV’s significant track record of work in improving river habitats in Scotland.
The two-day workshop, already oversubscribed, is part of a series of events aimed at sharing and embedding best practice in catchment management.
Under the title “Farming, flood risk and fisheries”, Clare will present an overview of our work to date for local Rivers and Fisheries Trusts, landowners and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). She will reflect on the specific challenges and achievements from working with rivers in Scotland, including funding sources, stakeholder management, and the perils of a “do nothing” approach in these highly active river systems.
Speaking of the workshop, Clare said: “We are pleased to be sponsoring this important event and I am delighted to be given the opportunity to share our experiences north of the border. It is very exciting to be playing an active role in this programme of catchment delivery events, continuing our team’s leading role in sharing and defining best practice in our industry.”
The workshop will be held in CIWEM’s London offices on the 22nd and 23rd November 2017.
