About this site

Welcome to the CaBA website. This site is intended to provide an online community platform and knowledge hub for all organisations and individuals interested in participating in collaborative and cross-sector management of the water environment.

The site includes an online discussion forum, training and knowledge resources, examples of best practice, tools and delivery case studies encompassing a broad range of policy and practitioner interests.

Much of the site is structured around the implementation of the ‘Catchment Based Approach (CaBA)’ – an England (and cross-border) initiative supported by a government policy framework aimed at delivering a more integrated and inclusive approach to managing the water environment at the catchment scale.

However, the site is intended to provide much broader support for the implementation of similar participatory and partnership-based approaches throughout the UK, EU and further afield and has been developed with support from by the WaterCo-Governance (WaterCoG) project under the Interreg North Sea Region VB programme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

We hope you find the site useful and welcome your feedback!



Use the discussion forum to meet others in the sector, discuss ideas, ask a question, post some news.
