Working with Natural Processes:

A catalogue of nature-based flood risk management projects in the UK.

This map shows two data sets:

  1. A catalogue of projects where the concept of working with natural processes is being applied on the ground, or considered as an option, to help reduce flood risk. The catalogue is maintained by the JBA Trust; see here for further details.
  2. A set of map layers indicating potential areas for working with natural processes to be beneficial, based on research published here undertaken by Defra, the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales.
Please follow the links above for further information about the WwNP catalogue and for guidance on the interpretation of the potential opportunity mapping.
