New course: Integrated Catchment Management

Integrated Catchment Management (ICM) aims to deliver positive and sustained outcomes for the water environment by promoting a better understanding of the physical processes taking place at a range of spatial scales within whole catchment units. This is an exciting time for ICM as communities and policy-makers look towards more economically viable, sustainable solutions to reduce flood hazard and improve water quality and sediment management.

This new course will be led by Arup, in partnership with Newcastle University and JBA Consulting, creating a team that brings a unique mix of leading technical specialists from consultancy as well as a high-ranking UK university. This course will support Catchment Management Plan approaches being taken by Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural Resources Wales that are expected to be part of the Welsh Government Water Strategy. Welsh Government has identified that the supply chain and designers working in the field will need to up-skill to work within this new regulatory approach.

Course dates will take place across Wales in March/April.
