CLA South East - Water; As custodians of water, how can land managers and farmers manage its use effectively?

The Environment Agency has warned that within 25 years England will not have enough water to meet demand if we don't dramatically change how we use it. This will be particularly important in the South East as summers get hotter and drier.

Farmers and land managers can help to be a big part of the solution but they must act responsibly to manage use and protect water quality across the region. This seminar will explore how that can be done.

We will look at issues faced in everyday use of water to run farms and businesses and then how to address these issues, including discussing the new CLA water strategy. 

Our speakers include

Alice Ritchie, Climate Change and Water Lead, CLA
Peter Taylor, Environment Agency
Clive Carpenter, Head of Water Resources, GWP
Trevor Bishop, Director, Water Resources South East
Hallam Mills, Farm Director, Bisterne Farms

Each of our speakers will present for around 20 minutes followed by two Q&A sessions. We will end with a panel discussion where you can listen and join in to put across your views. You will then have an opportunity to speak to the panellists on a one-to-one basis.

The event costs £12pp and will be run as a Zoom meeting. You will be sent the joining instructions 24 hours before the event begins.
