NATURE-BASED SURFACE WATER MANAGEMENT & URBAN PLANNING WEBINAR TO LAUNCH INTERIM NATIONAL GUIDANCE
The importance of managing urban rainfall and surface water runoff is increasingly being recognised in terms of environmental impact. This and the increased risk of flooding due to climate change, means that we need to adapt our approach to urban planning and design in Ireland and plan for greater resilience, environmental protection and sustainable living.

This Webinar is focussing on how we move to a nature-based approach to urban rainwater management. Following the URBAN PLANNING AND NATURE BASED SURFACE WATER MANAGEMENT Webinar in November 2020 which was attended by circa 500 people, and the Significant Water Management Issues Report, the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage (DHLGH) engaged in an intensive round of consultations across Local Authorities, Government Departments and Agencies, professional bodies and other stakeholders during 2021. This 2 hour webinar will include speakers from Wales and Ireland providing practical examples together with details of the following outputs from the project and the consultation exercise.
1. The Scoping Report with a roadmap of proposed steps towards the implementation of nature-based solutions.
2. Launch the Interim Guidance Document.

Nov 30, 2021 11:00 AM in Dublin
