Natural Flood Management – Minimising the risk

Organisation: Environment Agency

Location: National

Type: Technical Support & Training

NFM interventions can lead to risks including:

  1. Legal risks – such as the risk of legal action by a third party
  2. Financial risks – such as the risk of unplanned expenditure to maintain NFM features or structures
  3. Reputational risks – such as the risk of challenge over the failure of NFM features

These risks can be minimised by careful design and implementation of NFM projects. The Environment Agency has written a guide.
