Exploring the role surveyors can play in making the water sector more resilient...

Population growth, urbanisation, climate change and development pressures all have serious impacts on how we use water and as a global professional body, we should be leading the way so as the profession can remain relevant in the face of these challenges.

Michael Gove’s 25 Year Plan to Improve the Environment features key goals and policies around water; namely reducing flood risks, creating and sustaining wetlands to reduce flood risks, natural flood management, water abstraction, valuation of natural capital amongst others. These are all areas in which surveyors operate or advise on. Against this background, RICS has partnered up with the Environment Agency to launch the inaugural RICS Water Conference which will provide an opportunity for surveyors to engage with each other and share best practice in the water industry.

Join leading experts from water companies, regulators and government bodies as they discuss the future of the water sector and the role surveyors can play in making the industry more resilient.

In addition, you have the opportunity throughout the event to discuss how to certify your environmental credentials with the Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) registration. Head to the CEnv stand during the refreshment breaks to chat with John Klahn and Phil Underwood. 

Highlights of the conference include:

  • Delivering long term environmental improvement
  • Natural Infrastructure Schemes in practice
  • Water abstraction regime in England
  • Know your riparian rights
  • Roles and responsibilities of water companies
  • Statutory powers of water companies – a view from undertakers and landowners
  • Flooding, valuation and land.

Speakers include Chartered Environmentalists:

  • Pete Fox, Director of Water, Land and Biodiversity, Environment Agency
  • Philip Wilbourn, CEO, Wilbourn & Co
