With just days to go until our annual conference, "Water at the heart of climate resilience", the full agenda is now available to view. It promises to be an insightful, lively event with something for everyone, and we're so excited to share it with you. Last week, we announced an incredible line-up of keynote speakers, and now you can see what the rest of the programme will entail, including thought-provoking panel discussions and presentations on the UK and Europe's most exciting climate initiatives. Day One will run from 09:00-12:30 GMT and has a particular focus on European projects, whilst Day Two runs from 09:00-15:30 GMT and covers several themes within water and climate resilience.

About our supporters:

The conference is supported by Triple-C, which focuses on the capitalisation of successful initiatives and projects relating to the prevention and management of risks derived from climate change. Together with partners across the UK, Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal, the collective findings from more than 300 projects will be reviewed along with the investigation and promotion of actions that can ameliorate the impacts on society. These risks include flooding, drought, erosion, water pollution and fire from major habitat types including urban, agricultural, forest, coastal, marine, lakes and rivers.
