We have created an interactive map that shows where different types of river and catchment management approaches have the potential to help reduce flood risk by working with nature. The map also contains data we have assembled about natural flood management (NFM) projects to help build up a picture of what is being done across the UK. The interactive map shows three data sets:
The maps are provided as a research resource and we cannot make definitive statements about the accuracy of the information they contain. In particular, we know that some of the information could go out of date, or that there may be relevant data points we are not aware of. The areas shown on the map are based on national data sets and models, so they should not be relied on for detailed planning, but they give an indication of the types of land management measures that could be considered.
