Can the de-maining pilots help to deliver sustainable local flood risk management in future?

In a joint presentation by the EA and ADA, we will summarise the strong partnership work on the de-maining project, look at lessons learned, and explain whether there is potential for de-maining further in future. We will present case studies in order to share some of the issues we encountered.We will focus on some or all of the following:

- How we delivered improvements to governance and accountability in some of the pilot IDBs 

- How we built an assessment and opportunity to improve environmental performance in the pilot areas 

- What we learned from the public drop-ins and consultation

- The challenges of transferring assets between organisations alongside de-maining

- How we used a technical working group alongside the core project team to guide the delivery of the project

This approach may be one of the options available to enable communities to get more involved in local flood risk management in the future
