A Comment on Catchment Resilience

Dr Laurence Couldrick, CEO of Westcountry Rivers Trust, discusses catchment resilience. 

The effects of climate change and land management practices are very present.  Cumbria is still recovering and learning from the devastating floods caused by Storm Desmond in December 2015, and only last week we have been managing water shortages caused by very low rainfall in April.  This blog fluently expresses the need for multi-sector working in order for truly resilient catchments and communities to become established.
