URSULA conference: Integrating Multiple Facets of River Corridor Development

17-18th November 2011 – Mercure St Paul’s Hotel, Sheffield City Centre.

The project at the University of Sheffield brings together research from a number of disciplines to demonstrate the gains which may be made by integrated and innovative development in urban river corridors. This conference is the culmination of the four year project, and we have pleasure in inviting you to share our results.

There is a developing consensus that rivers in the urban environment now provide an asset to the city and wider reaches, rather than being just drains for stormwater and channels of pollution. River corridors, particularly in urban settings, can offer a wealth of benefits such as landscape enhancement, ecosystem vibrancy, flood control mechanisms, and opportunities for both economic development and recreation activities.
