The Flood and Coastal Resilience Innovation Programme (FCRIP) is part of the government's National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England. The strategy’s vision is for England to be a nation ready for, and resilient to, flooding and coastal change - today, tomorrow and to the year 2100.
The programme's main goals are to:
25 local projects were completed with the aim of demonstrating how practical innovations can boost resilience against flooding and coastal erosion. These projects focused on 10 resilience actions that go beyond the government's standard funding program.
This presentation will examine how different combinations of actions can benefit local resilience, and explore new approaches and partnerships to achieve resilience goals.
The talk will also explain "Catchment to Coast" objectives and explore creative applications of nature-based solutions and how fostering robust partnerships with local stakeholders can strategically unite communities against climate challenges.
