The Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) involves collaborative working at a river catchment scale to deliver improvements to our water environments. Partnerships, bringing local knowledge and expertise, are active in each of the 100+ catchments across England and cross-border Wales. More than 1,500 organisations are engaged with CaBA nationwide including NGOs, Water Companies, Local Authorities, Government Agencies, Landowners, Angling Clubs, Farming Groups, Academia & Local Businesses.
The aim of the Catchment based Approach website is to showcase all of the great work being undertaken by catchment partnerships across the country. By sharing best practice we aim to avoid duplication of effort and to ensure that CaBA Hosts can benefit from all of the lessons that have been learnt over the years by those engaged in catchment management. Ultimately, this website is designed to empower CaBA partnerships by showing them the huge and varied ways that partcipatory catchment planning and catchment management delivery can be done.
