What we're doing

The South East is facing very real challenges from climate change, more extreme weather events and a growing population. We need to start planning now to mitigate these risks and protect and improve our natural environment while continuing to provide a reliable, high-quality service.

We have a long way to go, but the actions we're taking today will help us to overcome the challenges of tomorrow and protect our environment for future generations.
