Feedback on the thematic day Cycl'Eau Vichy

On October 15th, at the Palais des Congrès in Vichy, the Loire-Brittany Water Agency and Cycl'eau organized a technical day on the theme: "And if nature was the solution?


The objectives of the event were:

  • To exchange with local and national actors to discover Nature-based Solutions
  • To discover how public water management policies, large and small cycle, allow the preservation and management of water resources and biodiversity, while meeting the challenges of territorial development in a context of climate change

The director of the DREAM Eau & Milieux Cluster Hervé Gaboriau was moreover invited to participate in the round table: “Which territorial strategies to promote Nature-based Solutions #SNF?” to promote #NBS through innovations alongside the Loire-Bretagne Water Agency, Marie-Hélène AUBERT, Valérie MORARD and the FNCCR, Jean LAUNAY, Director of the National Water Committee.
