The project has three main objectives:
1. To investigate the potential to reduce the risk of flooding to downstream communities through the utilisation of natural flood risk management (NFM) measures;
2. To improve habitats for wildlife and fish, and raise the ecological status of the river; and
3. To work with landowners and farmers in the local community to maximise the benefits of the work, whilst sustaining farming livelihoods and practices.
In seeking to deliver these objectives, the project aims to generate robust evidence of the impact, cost and benefits of working with natural processes at a catchment scale. The project took an empirical approach from the outset, based on detailed data collection, measurement and monitoring, rather than relying solely on models.
