The Environment Agency considers a wide range of different measures to address the flood and coastal erosion risk to communities and property. The measures needed for each location are considered on a case by case basis. Some of the measures that may be considered include:
- building flood and coastal defences
- flood storage reservoirs
- land management
- portable defences
The strategies and schemes are grouped by the geographic areas the Environment Agency operates from.
