The water programme has three pillars of work: healthy ecosystems, resilience and circular economy. These work areas are built on a foundation of enablers, provided by the Water Task Force. In the last 3 years, the work of the Water Taskforce has leveraged £0.5million towards collaborative campaigns such as healthy ecosystems, FOGs and SuDS. These projects have addressed challenging environmental issues that impact across sectors. Through action research the Water Taskforce projects have identified that cross cutting themes such as innovative financing mechanisms, digital and skills are integral to overcoming environmental challenges that will achieve positive social change.
