A new framework aims to boost collaboration between different researchers and organisations working in flood and coastal science, and those responsible for managing flood and coastal erosion risks along our coastlines. The framework also aims to boost local participation in the decisions made and measures adopted to protect or manage the coastline.
This Framework for Coastal Research, Development and Dissemination (CoRDDi) sets out research priorities for the next five years to improve Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM). The framework is being promoted through the joint Environment Agency/Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management R&D Programme. It forms one of the detailed research frameworks which nest below the Living with Environmental Change (LWEC) UK FCERM Research Strategy.
