Workshops delivered by the CaBA Urban Water Group to help catchment partnerships and planners learn about creating sustainable catchments. Download presentations and workshop summaries here.
Guidance on gaining greater participation from rural industries in CaBA. This guidance sign-posts to a series of practical case studies illustrating good practice.
A proposed approach to ensure plans meet partners’ needs, are compliant with legal commitments and helps achieve outcomes despite limited resource.
This document provides evaluation tools for catchment partnerships to self-assess their capabilities.
Three animations by The Rivers Trust to visually introduce natural capital and ecosystem services in three films. The first introduces the subjects, the second provides context for soil and land management, and the third film has been created to provide context for investment decisions.
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 Environment Agency has identified 40 projects in the Environment Agency’s Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk
Management current investment programme that include NFM measures as part of their solution.
The Environment Agency has surveyed project managers and practitioners to learn more about NFM, to have more confidence in it, and be able to use it as one of
the tools to reduce flood risk.
Guidance, technical manuals, templates and examples of how to setup and run an Outfall Safari to get local volunteers involved in surveying sources of urban pollution.
Trent Rivers Trust, working in partnership with Severn Trent Water, The Rivers Trust and the Environment Agency engaged the local community in surveying the Alfreton Brook for sources of urban pollution using a methodology first developed by Zoological Society of London.
Water quality training resources for CaBA partners to show what sort of information can be obtained from different types of water quality monitoring data, and to make available a suite of tools and resources to help access and analyse existing data, and plan future collaborative monitoring strategies.
This page provides a narrative to explain what natural capital is, why it is important for catchment partnerships and guides you through the growing list of resources available to help you incorporate natural capital into the work of the partnership
