Launch Event

We recently launched Water Resources West through a virtual conference, outlining our plans to bring stakeholders together and deliver a plan for water usage in the region. The interactive event involved a panel discussion and networking opportunities as we introduced water resources.

Water Resources West launches online

On Friday 16 October we officially launched Water Resources West through a virtual conference and webinar, including an exclusive panel discussion.

Richard Blackwell, Director of Water Resources West, and Dan Rogerson, Chair of Water Resources West, introduced the group and its ambitions to deliver resilient and sustainable water resources for our region.

Panel discussion and key themes

We were delighted to be joined by a high-profile panel including Margaret Read (Director, Stakeholder & Programme, RAPID), Mike Morris (CEO, Severn Rivers Trust), Ian Brown (Head of Water Resources, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water) and Adam Briggs (Environment & Land User Advisor, NFU North West).

Key themes in our panel discussion included water resources, net zero ambitions, environmental opportunities and climate change.

The interactive launch allowed delegates to pose questions to the panellists with the opportunity for networking before and after the event closed.
