2016 case study on flood risk management in Sussex

This case study examines the potential for natural flood risk management (NFM) in the lowlands of southern England.

We have been identifying ways to slow and store water higher up the catchment using:

  • floodplain woodland
  • hedgerows
  • a range of other measures.

The study has been carried out in partnership with Sussex Wildlife Trust (SWT) and the Environment Agency (EA).
