To meet long term challenges of water stress, stringent environmental needs, high population growth, risk of drought or flooding and climate change, we need to develop a more integrated approach to managing the water environment.
We will work across the whole water cycle, rather than at individual solutions that only address specific environmental aspects in certain geographical areas.
This is an innovative approach and will show leadership within the region. Greater collaboration and working with third parties, as well as enhanced technical understanding will be required to realise the expected benefits.

Southern Water hosted a workshop bringing together stakeholders from across the South East and beyond to share best practice and to discuss how to identify opportunities for greater collaboration and to help organisations across catchments to better manage risk.
