FCERM Strategy - Evidence

Closed 4 Jul 2019

Opened 1 Jul 2018


During the scoping phase of the FCERM Strategy, information and evidence on flood and coastal change was pulled together to help inform and to stimulate discussion.  This information was collated from a range of sources and organisations involved in flood and coastal erosion risk management.  The evidence packs were developed from this information.  You can download these evidence packs by clicking the links at the bottom of this page. 

As the FCERM Strategy developed, the Working Groups brought together more information, further evidence, and also highlighted where there may be evidence gaps.  This evidence has continued to build as we worked to refine and define our ambition for FCERM in 2050.

If you think we are missing some vital evidence that you can share, please do send it to us at FCERMstrategy@environment-agency.gov.uk
