One element of the MaRIUS Drought and Water Scarcity project is to explore and review options for drought management practice in England & Wales beyond the existing regulatory framework and to discuss qualitatively the potential effectiveness of and constraints upon these options with stakeholders. A scenario building workshop offers the possibility to develop explorative scenarios for drought management and is an opportunity for unconstrained blue sky thinking about drought management options based on the question What can happen?

This scenario building workshop is an interactive workshop bringing together different stakeholders' and researchers’ perspectives on drought management. The stakeholders range from water companies, Ofwat, DEFRA, EA to the RSPB and the National Farmers Union.

The workshop is hosted by Kevin Grecksch, Research Officer in the regulation of water resources at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies. The workshop is by invitation only.
