Implementation of natural flood risk management (NFM) and many other nature-based approaches to sustainability, has accelerated in recent years, including in the United Kingdom (UK). Both the National Infrastructure Assessment (2018) and the National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England (2020) recommend NFM amongst future priorities. In this presentation Simon and Marcus will provide a synthesis of recent advances in the natural science evidence base concerning the effectiveness of catchment-based natural flood management (NFM) in the United Kingdom.

We invite you to join us on the journey to celebrate and transform our rivers towards resilience and ensure our rivers are there for our future generations.
