On the 12-13th September over 170 people representing 44 different organisations attended the 2016 River Trust Autumn Conference in Exeter, which was hosted by the Westcountry Rivers Trust.

The Conference which was entitled, ‘The Partnership approach & assessing the benefits of catchment management.’ , was designed to bring environmental professionals together from across the country, (especially in light of the recent decision to leave the EU), to plan a way of working together in the future to tackle the complex environmental problems we face such as diffuse pollution and habitat fragmentation. The conference set out the benefits and drawbacks of partnership working and the effectiveness of dealing with problems at a catchment-scale.
