CECAN and Mott McDonald run first workshop as part of Defra Water Systems research project

Cumbria Workshop

 

Alex Penn and Pete Barbrook-Johnson (CECAN Senior Research Fellows based at University of Surrey) and colleagues from Mott McDonald ran the first of three Participatory Systems Mapping workshops in the Eden river catchment in Cumbria on 15th January 2020.

The session brought together a mix of different actors in the area, to build a rich understanding of the complex water and environment issues in the catchment. It is part of a wider project funded by Defra to explore how a whole systems and complexity approach can be valuable when working at the river catchment scale.
