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 basic data that should be collected by all Defra funded Community Scale Natural Flood Management (NFM) schemes. Catchment scale schemes are also required to collect this data, but are also expected to supplement this with more detailed monitoring and evaluation described in the full Monitoring and Evaluation guidance, to be re-released shortly.
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.
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
This guide has been developed to provide simple, clear information on natural flood management measures for landowners and farmers in the North West.
This quick guide will help Environment Agency officers understand potential risks and liabilities to consider when working with natural processes to reduce flood and coastal erosion risk.

– the Environment Agency itself
– contractors or other risk management authorities on our behalf
– others, such as local community groups, landowners and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) with whom we are working in
