Report summaries

The natural capital of floodplains: management, protection and restoration to deliver greater benefits. Valuing Nature - Natural Capital Synthesis Report. VNP09.

Floodplains are important natural capital assets which deliver a wide range of benefits to people. The interface between terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems in floodplains fosters both a wealth and a complexity of resources that are challenging to measure and compare.

Land management in lowland catchments for integrated flood risk reduction

The LANDWISE project is a collaboration of academics, policy makers and practitioners to investigate the impact of land use and management on flood risk in the Upper Thames catchment. It will quantify through measurement and modelling by how much, where and how the flood risk benefits can be up-scaled from local to river basin level.
