The Eddleston Water Project is a major UK partnership research project to measure the effects of river restoration and natural flood management techniques. The international project Building with Nature (BwN), funded by the Scottish Government and the European Union’s INTERREG North Sea Region Programme, is an emerging complementary concept. BwN recognises that natural processes help to keep us safe against coastal erosion and flooding. The Eddleston Water Project is one of BwN’s “living laboratories”, helping scientists and policymakers get the evidence they need to make the best decisions for flood risk management.
