Natural Flood Management will not prevent flooding, however it could be an integral part of our approach to manage flooding within the UK.
By working with natural processes and features within the landscape, NFM can deliver multiple benefits – improving connectivity, biodiversity and habitats that create greater resilience and adaptability within our catchments.
