Natural Flood Management paper out

There is just out a new summary of what is meant by "Natural Flood Management" published by the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology or POST. It is an excellent guide to the various techniques and their potential effectiveness, plus it contains case studies too. Its quite short and fairly untechnical, so it should be reasonably accessible.

Natural flood management, defined here as the alteration, restoration or  use of landscape features, is being promoted as a novel way of reducing flood risk and fits with what we are arguing for in the Stroud Valleys. This POST note reviews the policy drivers of this approach,  as well as the scientific basis, and implementation, of inland natural  flood management strategies. Download from:
