UK professionals gathered to discuss the future challenges of the water industry

Addressing the association’s annual Winter Reception, held at the House of Lords, she said: "By working together there are big opportunities for global Britain, but more importantly, there are big opportunities to solve the environmental challenges of our time. The availability and use of water is high on the list."

"Water is the frontline of climate change impact"

Reflecting on the devastation of recent storm events, Howard Boyd said that climate change makes for bigger and more frequent events, along with more shortages. "Water is the frontline of climate change impact in this country, both too much of it and too little of it. And that is why it is crucial that alongside commitments to net zero we also talk about adaptation and resilience."
Giving weight to the Adapt Now report from the Global Commission on Adaptation, where she represented the UK, Howard Boyd said the document "put a very strong mandate around adaptation and resilience." The commissioners’ analysis finds that investing US$1.8 trillion globally from 2020 to 2030 could generate US$7.1 trillion in total net benefits and water resource resilience is one of five areas considered ripe for transformation.
The British Water Winter Reception was sponsored by MWH Treatment, Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd, Thermaco, Cranfield University, Glan Agua, Haigh Engineering, Servelec Technologies and Watr Tech.
