The Process of Successful Tree Pit Design: Avoiding pitfalls

This session will guide participants through the process of successfully planting urban trees, based on the GreenBlue’s Urban Tree Design Guide for landscape designers and installers. Available root space, irrigation, drainage, aeration and engineering requirements will be considered in establishing urban trees as part a stormwater retention strategy.

 

SUDS Toolbox: A new digital resource for sustainable water management

The SPONGE 2020 Toolbox pulls together insights from behavioural science and public sector marketing with proven success in stakeholder engagement work. It provides local authorities with tools to mobilise local stakeholders in climate adaptation. The session will provide a step-by-step procedure for engaging stakeholders in flood management and developing climate adaptation solutions.

 

Quick Scan Tool for SUDS: Gaining support for sustainable drainage solutions

The Quick Scan Tool provides a pictorial assessment of sustainable drainage solutions which can be used to secure support from non-technical stakeholders. The tool provides a comparison of two or more alternative drainage installations on the same location based on both qualitative and quantitative data.
