Explore how slowing the flow and adopting Te Mana o te Wai – the Māori approach to prioritising the health of waterways are being used to improve our resilience to climate change and flooding events in the UK and Aotearoa.


Join CIWEM President Niki Roach and her guest Co-Host Liam Foster from WSP New Zealand as they hear from Catherine Wright and Oliver Harmar of the Environment Agency in England to explore the topic of resilience. Our guests share their experience of major flooding incidents in England in 2019 and how they applied lessons learned to managing Storm Christoph in early 2021.  Liam and Niki explore how the approach compares to water management in New Zealand – Aotearoa  and what we can learn from each other’s challenges.
