This research finds that there is significant room for improving the way that the Environment Agency collaborates with professional partners and communities on flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM). The work also suggests that examples of good collaboration result from individual initiative rather than from corporate incentives and processes. It is of some urgency now that the approach to collaboration is improved across the organisation.
