Event Description

Natural Flood Management (NFM) is increasingly being used to reduce flood risk where hard engineering is deemed not a viable solution. Across the country the Environment Agency has been allocated money to deliver a number of trail schemes to investigate the benefits and challenges in delivering these soft engineered interventions.

John Hollis will give an overview of what NFM is and how it sits on a spectrum of measures. He will talk about the nationwide £15m programme, how it’s being delivered, the challenges faced and how the Environment Agency plans to review and implement lessons learnt.

In addition, Ben Tonkin will present a local case study on Natural Flood Management in the South East of England, called 'The Dorking NFM scheme: monitoring and evaluation of NFM intervention methods to inform practice'.
