Cities are intrinsically connected and dependent on water resources within and around their basins. Cities can integrate nature into urban infrastructure design. Approaches such as greening buildings, permeable paving, roadside green infrastructure, parks in the urban landscape and safe flooding spaces for waterways can reconnect people to rainwater as an opportunity rather than a nuisance. This webinar by the International Water Association focuses on the approaches cities are taking to integrate green infrastructure within the urban areas as well as proactive engagement in managing wat

Lincolnshire's low-lying farm plains and coastline risk flooding, if the latest UN warnings that the world is on course for 3C of global warming come true. In October the UN warned that there is still a large gap between the pledges by governments to cut greenhouse gas emissions and the reductions scientists say are needed to avoid dangerous levels of climate change. Current promises, plans and practices would lead to temperature rises of as much as 3C or more by the end of this century. Lincolnshire’s flat, low-lying agricultural plains, which stretch north from the f
