On the 31st October, the Environment Agency (EA) launched the outcome of the above project. This has been developed to help flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM) authorities understand, justify, develop and implement FCERM schemes with WWNP to reduce flood risk. The meeting included presentations from a range of projects that have successfully implemented NFM measures on the ground, through effective partnerships, whilst drawing on a range of funding streams.
The EA undertook 3 interconnected projects (The Evidence Directory, Mapping the Potential for WWNP, and Research Gaps) that together make up the WWNP evidence
The event was the first of two with a second event taking place on the 6th December in Leeds.
