Q-NFM : Quantifying the likely magnitude of nature-based flood mitigation effects across large catchments

Project: Research

Description

How much can natural measures reduce flooding at large scales? To answer this question over the next three years the Q-NFM investigator team will work in three large Cumbrian catchments ('test basins'), the Eden, Derwent and Kent (see Task 3) with their partners who are delivering NFM interventions (see Task 7). The project has seven tasks that will build a scientifically credible, shared understanding of the role that Natural Flood Management (NFM) could play in reducing flood risk in the UK and locally in Cumbria (the test region). Task 7 relies on the expertise and experience gained by partner organisations and both informs Task 4-6 modelling and provides a means of sharing findings from across the project.
