Event description

This joint webinar brought to you by the CIWEM Northern Ireland branch and the Institute of Water NI will provide an overview of the LWWP, Belfast Strategic Drainage Infrastructure Plan that was published in November 2021.

Our speakers will explore the key challenges that must be overcome to protect against flooding whilst enhancing the environment and providing increased capacity for economic growth.

Details of how the development of the scope of the projects is coming along will be covered, focusing on the procurement and delivery of larger projects and the mitigations being deployed due to constraints to development through lack of capacity.
