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.
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
How much can natural measures reduce flooding at large scales? To answer this question over the next three years the Q-NFM investigator team, lead by Lancaster University, will work in three large Cumbrian catchments (‘test basins’), the Eden, Derwent and Kent with their partners who are delivering NFM interventions .
NEVO is a map-based decision support tool to inform decisions that affect the natural environment of England and Wales. It makes use of state-of-the-art environmental and economic models developed by the University of Exeter in a user-friendly interface.
In this review, Westcountry Rivers Trust explores the data and evidence available, which, taken together, demonstrate qualitatively and quantitatively that the delivery of integrated catchment management interventions can realise genuine improvements in water quality.
Encourage and facilitate the use of the spatial data in ARCGIS. Train practitioners to develop their GIS and spatial data skills and, in so doing, build capability in their organisations. Environmental professionals are often highly ‘geographically literate’, but they do still require specialised, application-based training to become skilled GIS technicians who can then incorporate the robust and effective use of GIS into their day-to-day work.
Citizen Science is a fundamental data gathering and engagement tool for Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) partnerships to help develop an understanding of the issues in catchments and also to engage their local communities in identifying and delivering solutions.
The Rivers Trust Mapping Portal provides CaBA partnerships with online access to a selection of datasets from the desktop GIS package, plus some newly released layers.
