PROJECT SUMMARY

This work was commissioned as a step towards making the existing economic appraisal system for FCERM projects more useful for local partners such as Local Authorities, Internal Drainage Boards, Local Enterprise Partnerships, business groups and other beneficiaries of flood and coastal management and land drainage. The rise of partnership working and funding in FCERM and land drainage means that the emphasis of appraisal is shifting from a centralised option-selection tool for Risk Management Authorities spending national Grant in Aid, to a more holistic assessment of impacts on a range of partners, including those assessing the local case for contributing their own funding to supplement Grant in Aid.
