Tackling a changing climate

The role of water companies in tackling the effects of climate change was the theme of WWT's fourth round table, which took place at the Institute of Directors in London on 27 February 2008. Issues around data, affordability, leadership and collaboration were taken up by the panel, which included Defra Minister of State Phil Woolas.

WWT's editor, Natasha Wiseman, said: "The industry's response to the challenge of climate change is in its early stages. Openness, cooperation and a sharing of expertise will be vital if solutions are to be found.

"This was the spirit of the panel, whose insightful contributions gave the discussion the depth and range we have come to expect from WWT's round tables."
