UK and Ireland natural flood management practitioner workshop

On the 19th of February, 2013 a practitioners’ NFM workshop was held in Edinburgh. The main objective of the workshop was to exchange knowledge about practical aspects of NFM implementation. By gathering NFM practitioners together and people researching the impacts of NFM, key sticking points and suggested solutions could be shared to avoid duplicated resources. A total of 33 participants attended from a range of organisations including the James Hutton Institute, Scottish Government, several universities, SEPA, OPW, consultancies and rivers trusts (see participant list in Appendix I). This report captures and highlights the opinions and discussions of the delegate who attended this meeting.
