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.
Three animations by The Rivers Trust to visually introduce natural capital and ecosystem services in three films. The first introduces the subjects, the second provides context for soil and land management, and the third film has been created to provide context for investment decisions.
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.
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.
Trent Rivers Trust, working in partnership with Severn Trent Water, The Rivers Trust and the Environment Agency engaged the local community in surveying the Alfreton Brook for sources of urban pollution using a methodology first developed by Zoological Society of London.
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
How much can natural measures reduce flooding at large scales? To answer this question over the next three years the Q-NFM investigator team, lead by Lancaster University, will work in three large Cumbrian catchments (‘test basins’), the Eden, Derwent and Kent with their partners who are delivering NFM interventions .
