Policy focus: integrated land and water management

As our 2020/21 President Niki Roach would say, "everything is connected". At CIWEM we take a systems view to environmental management, considering all the different elements and the ways they interact.

This web page acts as a repository for our policy work relating to land and its sustainable management to support the wider environment.

Our central policy work and events on sustainable land management are supported by our natural capital specialist panel and network and our water resources specialist panel. Our branches also run excellent events on a range of topics, including in this area.
