Integrated water cycle management

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.

Find out more about how we will meet our future challenges for the water environment.
