Navigating the evolving landscape created by Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has tested our societal resilience in coping with a significant threat. Its impact has highlighted the importance of planning for the future, whatever that future may bring. As we mobilise to face the climate emergency, adopt low carbon solutions and become more community focused; we can also continue to shift our approach as water stewards, at an accelerated rate.

Stantec can not only assist you in your response to the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, but can also support the shift in thinking and delivery needed for what will follow; identifying both the challenges and opportunities to exceed the plans and ambitions set out for AMP7.

The world started 2020 more aware than ever of the pressing climate emergency and the necessity of ambitions to achieve zero net carbon. Covid-19 has tested our societies further still and has been negotiated at heavy cost. However, the changes in behaviour and the increased appetite for the adoption of community-based solutions, could also provide new pathways to tackle wider, global challenges and transform the delivery and utilisation of water services.
