A natural flood management approach, Hull

About this event

Steve Rose will present an introduction to Natural Flood Management (NFM) within a catchment context, together with its potential contribution to the flood risk management toolbox using examples from a wide range of NFM studies from across the UK. This will be followed by a roundup of the available guidance publications on NFM and a description of the major Environment Agency Science Project tasked with exploring and analysing the collective evidence about NFM effectiveness and performance, which is due for publication in autumn 2017.

The second half of the presentation will discuss a range of techniques and methods by which we can map potential NFM opportunities across catchments, and then model their predicted flood attenuation benefits both locally and downstream. The value of these mapping and modelling products to stakeholder engagement activities, particularly through Catchment Partnerships, will be discussed in relation to helping to influence long term sustainable catchment management change and secure funding streams for new NFM initiatives.
