The guide summarises the data that should be collected by all Defra funded Community & Catchment Scale Natural Flood Management (NFM) schemes. The majority of this data will be collected using the ArcGIS Online (AGOL) tool. Additional more complex data will be collected at the end of each project using the Excel templates provided.
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.
This guide has been developed to provide simple, clear information on natural flood management measures for landowners and farmers in the North West.
