Priorities for water management

Morning, Tuesday, 19th April 2022

This conference will focus on the way forward for water management.

It takes place with key developments in regulation and policy, changing consumer demands, and against the backdrop of net-zero objectives and the drive to address biodiversity loss, and reduce pollution and contamination.

The conference will be a timely opportunity to consider the issues in the context of:

  • the upcoming Price Review 2024 (PR24)
  • the ongoing Water Industry National Environment Programme (WINEP) consultation
  • the Environment Act
  • the recently outlined Environmental Land Management Schemes
  • the National Infrastructure Assessment

Areas for discussion include:

  • environmental priorities - including reducing pollution, contamination, and improving wastewater treatment, as well as addressing the challenges of water storage and drainage 
  • regulation - PR19 progress, Environmental Land Management Scheme implementation, and developing resilience and adaptability across the sector in response to changing markets
  • collaboration - latest thinking of opportunities and strategies for joint working in the water sector, and improving engagement with wider stakeholders, communities and households
  • infrastructure development - tackling priorities identified by the baseline report ahead of the next National Infrastructure Assessment

We are pleased to be able to include keynote sessions with Jonson Cox, Chairman, Ofwat; and Alastair Chisholm, Director of Policy, The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management.
