Scottish Natural Flood Management Network launched

A new website aiming to become a sharing platform for policymakers, researchers, scientists and anyone interested in the use of landscape features to reduce flood risk has been launched.

The Natural Flood Management (NFM) Network Scotland, funded by the Scottish Government's Rural and Environment Science and Analytical Services Division (through the Centre of Expertise for Waters and the Strategic Research Programme) was launched at an event organised by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, the Environment Agency and the Chartered Institute of Water and Environment Management.

The NFM website will provide a platform for sharing approaches, raising awareness and encouraging collaboration. It is hoped that access to this resource will create an invaluable tool for those tasked with delivering a sustainable approach to flood risk management in Scotland.
