The Water Resources East programme brings together partners from a wide range of industries including: water, energy, retail, the environment, land management and agriculture, to work in collaboration to manage these challenges, building on the area’s unique opportunities for sustainable future growth, and pioneering a new approach to managing water resources.
In a region with rapid economic development and strong environmental ambition at a time of climate emergency, WRE will work with water users across Eastern England to:
Identify and develop multi-sector collaborative solutions which meet the needs of all water users.
Promote holistic landscape scale water management, working from individual landowner scale, on a catchment-based approach and across wider political and hydrological boundaries.
Develop new water management solutions which are highly innovative, both technically and in the business models and regulatory frameworks that they use, helping to shape and influence future policy on water management.
