Strategies for resilient and sustainable integrated catchment management

Currently, water companies are cautious about the uptake of new tools and services across the water cycle, since there is limited quantitative information and it tends to be on a small scale. This project aims to develop strategies for resilient and sustainable integrated catchment management in the face of uncertain future change through modelling the future risks to the physical infrastructure of the system arising from environmental forcings. The ambition is to contribute robust and adaptive economic strategies for catchment management, which will have applications within the water industry planning cycles
