The CaBA Catchment Data & Evidence Forum 2019 was held in Bristol Zoo’s Clifton Pavillion on September 18th, and the 75 attendees listened to over 20 topics. Workshops were held to debate the future CaBA data sharing and monitoring strategy, and interactive voting sessions were used to gauge audience opinion on a range of issues. This resource provides a handy overview of the presentations and workshops of the forum.
The purpose of this resource is to provide guidance and suggestions for capturing more meaningful metrics on engagement (citizen science, volunteering etc) and the social and economic benefits of work by CaBA partnerships.
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.
This guide is designed to assist landowners in the Shropshire area carry out small-scale maintenance work on watercourses running through their land.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
