Watch this event

Join Dr Rebecca Wade from Abertay University on this journey through the multiple functions and benefits to be realised from well-designed blue green infrastructure. From functional flooding, diffuse pollution control and urban climate adaptation, to biodiversity, amenity, public health & well-being and economic gains.

Rebecca will also share her experiences of re-engineering rivers using natural forms and processes to assist with natural flood management and habitat restoration from Scotland and the US.
