Flood Risk Management Workshops – Cumbria

Following on from the December 2015 floods, Cumbria Strategic Flood Partnership hosted a string of workshops across Cumbria in early 2017 in order to share knowledge about flood risk catchment-wide. The workshops brought together experts and practitioners in the field, with partners, stakeholders and communities to share current understandings of managing flood risk on a catchment-wide basis.

The workshops undertaken included: ‘Geomorphology’, ‘Woodland Management’, ‘Plan, Prepare, Respond Recover’, and ‘Working with natural processes’. You can now view the presentations given at the workshops, and download the accompanying slides on the Catchment Based Approach website here: https://catchmentbasedapproach.org/learn/flood-risk-management-workshops-cumbria/
