On 25th Septmber 2020, endorsed by parliament, the national Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) Strategy for England was adopted and published on

The Strategy has been developed working with over 90 organisations and there has been an extensive public consultation. The result is a final document with significant support that will result in positive changes to the way flooding and coastal change is managed in England. We have now published a consultation response document alongside the final Strategy - please visit the Draft Strategy Consultation page.

To help support the launch of the strategy, we have produced a slide pack and questions and answers document as well as suite of social media products including a video, gif and graphics which we will be sharing across our Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram accounts. You can download the materials from this page. It would be fantastic if you could help support on social media by using these materials and sharing our posts. You can follow @EnvAgency on twitter and join the conversation by using #FCERMstrategy.
