Irish Conference 2019 Wading into Water: The Assessment and Management of our Aquatic Environment
This conference will provide forward thinking, practical advice and best practice examples, giving the attendees an opportunity to learn and take useful information into their work when Wading into Water.
In the 2019 Irish conference, CIEEM aim to create a space where ecologists can discuss and learn about how we work in the water environment. This event will take a high-level look at policy with updates on WFD implementation, flood defence and an overall catchment approach. But there will also be a practical aspect, looking at the role of the ecologist when undertaking potential impact assessments on water quality, assimilative capacity studies and method statements, as well as exploring the collection of appropriate data to underpin and ensure robust assessments. The day will then close off with an open conversation on how ecologists and engineers need to work together in the water environment.
