  • Mainstreaming natural flood management – Claire Johnstone , Economics Manager, Environment Agency

The Working with Natural Processes Evidence Directory brings together the learning from 65 case studies from across the UK. It pulls together in one location a suite of tools which can be used by Flood Risk Managers to understand the potential benefits of Natural Flood Management (NFM) in their catchment. This evidence base, combined with a recent project on the costs and benefits of NFM show that these types of schemes are a cost-effective flood risk solution. Perhaps more significantly, the case study evidence shows that NFM interventions are a valuable part of the FCRM toolkit because they produce a range of additional benefits to people and communities.
They can help us engage and work with our partners who are interested in this wider set of potential benefits, such as reducing diffuse pollution and better land management, increasing wildlife habitat with the associated recreation, health and education benefits, and increasing the resilience of catchments to climate pressures.
The recent government funding allocated to new NFM investments will increase our knowledge and understanding of both the flood risk and additional benefits these schemes provide over the next few years. For example we want to better value the additional benefits, in both monetary and non-monetary terms.
