The aim of the Environment Agency’s national flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM) strategy for England is to ensure that the risk of flooding and coastal erosion is properly managed and coordinated to minimise its impact.

At Dunwich Heath and Minsmere in East Anglia, the National Trust has led a flood risk management project. Habitat creation and soft engineering, combined with local engagement and partnership working, is already producing good outcomes for people and the environment.
