A new Freshwater Natural Capital report by The Rivers Trust finds that England’s rivers, canals, lakes and ponds provide annual economic benefits in excess of £1.7 billion, plus numerous wider health and biodiversity benefits.
This literature review outlines findings from 60 documents and interviews with nine experts on existing knowledge around pro-water campaigning and behaviour change.
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.
The report represents a summary of work undertaken as part of a wider pilot programme exploring Catchment Partnership resilience.
The CaBA Benefits Report report states that during 2018 to 2019, for every £1 directly invested by Government, CaBA partnerships have raised £3.20 of co-finance from a diverse range of non-Governmental funders. These include corporate businesses, water and waste companies (though landfill taxes), EU funds (LIFE, Interreg and Horizon 2020) as well as lottery funds.
This report has been written to help catchment partnerships, and other local environmental organisations, better understand the opportunities for, and ways to rise to the challenges of, attracting additional investment for environmental gain.
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.
