Stök frétt

Norræna vatnaráðstefnan (Nordic WFD Conference) verður haldin á Hilton Reykjavik Nordica í Reykjavík dagana 30. ágúst til 1. september 2022.

Vatnaráðstefnan er samstarfsvettvangur fyrir norræna aðila sem sinna innleiðingu vatnatilskipunar (Water Framework Directive).

Markmið ráðstefnunnar er að deila reynslu og ræða um þær áskoranir sem felast í vatnaáætlun ríkjanna og verndun vatns, en Ísland staðfesti nýverið sína fyrstu vatnaáætlun.

Fyrsti dagur ráðstefnunnar, 30. ágúst, er opinn öllum. Dagskráin samanstendur af opnum fyrirlestrum og umræðum. Dagskráin fer fram á ensku. Þátttakendur geta valið um að mæta á Hilton Reykjavik Nordica eða fylgjast með í streymi.

Seinni tveir dagar ráðstefnunnar eru fyrir sérfræðinga í stjórnsýslu vatnamála.
