Details

The results from this project reccomend that the Environment Agency should urgently consider its approach to managing flood risk, in particular:

  • Shifting the emphasis from a focus on internal needs of the Environment Agency onto the problems of flood risk management and joint working to solve them.
  • Understanding the needs and roles of others (such as professional partners, community members) and how to work with them effectively across the whole flood risk cycle. This should include national-level exploration of flooding and what to do about it
  • Reviewing the way that data, evidence and expertise is valued and delivered.
