Water and Planning: the fluid challenge


Time: 18:15 - 20:45

Organiser: RTPI London

Location: London

Topical area: Integrated planning, Water, waste and sanitation, Climate change, Flooding and storms


RTPI London, PIA UK Branch and NZPI UK Branch invite you to an evening seminar to support World Town Planning Day.

This year's debate will focus on water and how we can plan for our future communities in response to the increasing water-related challenges (flood, drought, climate change, supply shortages). The water supply crisis has recently been identified by the World Economic Forum as being the second highest risk facing the world in terms of impact.

Join our panel to debate how we should be planning and responding to the fluid challenge!
