I have a question for Mohammed. I note one of your publications assessed the impacts of a Sudanese dam project. Could you tell us a little about what the main outcomes were from your research paper and how that may influence decisions made here in the UK but also future international projects? I sound very UK-centered but I'm rather interested in ensuring dam projects worldwide are properly balanced.

Our waterways are precious. Outside of a national lock-down(!) I and many friends spend time kayaking and canoeing on both whitewater and canals.

We have seen an increase in a number of environment projects which aim to dam rivers with little public consultation or consideration for wildlife (e.g The Conwy). How can you as a team encourage better management of dam projects? How will you take into consideration the needs of the right for the public to access these waterways for outdoor activities?
