I have had opportunities to be involved in and influence the most important environmental and water topics, such as the 25 year Environment Plan and government strategy and policy in flood and coastal erosion risk management. It is very rewarding to be able to step away from the day job and understand the broader issues affecting our environment through CIWEM.
