Monitoring & Evaluating the DEFRA Natural Flood Management Projects. A Summary Guide

The guide summarises the basic data that should be collected by all Defra funded Community Scale Natural Flood Management (NFM) schemes. Catchment scale schemes are also required to collect this data, but are also expected to supplement this with more detailed monitoring and evaluation described in the full Monitoring and Evaluation guidance, to be re-released shortly.

the tools to reduce flood risk.
