This handbook provides conceptual, practical and regulatory guidance on the beneficial use of sediments arising from dredging activities for restoring estuarine and coastal habitats across the UK.
This Saltmarsh Habitat Restoration Handbook aims to provide practical guidance on restoring and creating saltmarsh habitat across the UK and Ireland. It brings together advice on planning and implementing such schemes with case studies and lessons from previous examples.
The Fund has been set up to support farmers and landowners in the implementation of measures that work with natural processes to reduce flood risk to the major road network (‘A’ roads and motorways). The Fund is being piloted in parts of the Little Don, River Etherow and River Irwell catchments.
In this report, the CaBA National Support Group worked with the National Flood Forum to identify how Flood Action Groups and CaBA groups could work more collaboratively.
This guide has been produced to provide simple, clear advice on the provision of natural flood management measures for lowland areas.
This document brings together a number of easy-to-install monitoring measures that can be used to help
understand the effectiveness of field scale agricultural measures or Natural Flood Management schemes in catchments.
The Desktop CaBA GIS Data Package is a set of over 150 data layers, which is provided to CaBA Catchment Hosts under a license negotiated centrally with the data providers. Version 5 is a complete refresh of all the preceding versions and has some great new data in it too.

The guidance is primarily for NFM scheme developers who use Leaky Woody Structures (LWS), but it will also inform landowners, commissioning bodies, contractors and consenting bodies about the risks they need to consider when planning the installation of these structures.
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.
