One week to go! Working with Natural Processes: The Evidence Behind Natural Flood Management, 31 October
The UK has experienced repeated severe flooding in recent years, which has raised the profile of Natural Flood Management (NFM) creating a prominent discussion of the benefits of working more closely with natural processes to help reduce flood risk and complement more traditional engineering responses, aiming to manage and reduce flood risk in a more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable way.
This conference will launch the Environment Agency’s ‘Working with Natural Processes Evidence Base’ which has been developed to help flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM) authorities understand, justify, develop and implement FCERM schemes with WWNP to reduce flood risk. It will also include presentations from a range of existing projects that have successfully implemented NFM measures on the ground, through effective partnerships, whilst drawing on a range of funding streams.
