National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy

The Environment Agency has now published the National FCERM Strategy as required under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010. This strategy sets out a statutory framework which will help all those involved in flood and coastal erosion risk management and local communities to work together to manage flood and coastal erosion risks. It will support local decision making and engagement and ensure that risks are managed in a co-ordinated way across catchments and along each stretch of coast. It includes the development of local flood risk management strategies. Organisations directly involved in FCERM include local authorities, internal drainage boards, water and sewerage companies and highways authorities, as well as the Environment Agency itself.
