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 .
NEVO is a map-based decision support tool to inform decisions that affect the natural environment of England and Wales. It makes use of state-of-the-art environmental and economic models developed by the University of Exeter in a user-friendly interface.
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. This is relevant when working on projects involving natural flood management (NFM) interventions to be undertaken by:
– 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
The following guidance and case studies have been created by the CaBA Urban Water Group to help catchment partnerships and planners in urban areas create sustainable catchments.
In this review, Westcountry Rivers Trust explores the data and evidence available, which, taken together, demonstrate qualitatively and quantitatively that the delivery of integrated catchment management interventions can realise genuine improvements in water quality.
A guidance document on engaging with the Water Framework Directive – a legal framework for the protection and promotion of sustainable water management of surface waters (including coastal waters out to one nautical mile) and groundwater.
As part of the Natural Course project, City of Trees created a wet woodland in the heart of Salford to help improve the failing water quality of the Worsley Brook. A year on and the wet woodland is now thriving with greenery and wildlife is returning to the area.
