PROJECT SUMMARY

We have developed a working with natural processes research and development framework.

This framework indentifies the research projects which need to be undertaken to help Flood Risk Management Authorities deliver flood risk management sustainably, improving the environment for people and wildlife.

The framework has been developed in partnership with a range of organisations including many lead experts within this field of science. It will be used to help prioritise projects for funding as part of the joint flood and coastal risk management research programme. It will also be used to develop external funding bids and to facilitate partnership working.

We are working with colleagues in Scotland and Wales to establish a natural flood management network to help share knowledge and best practice across the UK.
