The effects of climate change are already felt in the Trent catchment, as communities report more frequent and intense flooding during the summer and winter months.
With the need to protect communities from the fast-increasing risk of flooding, natural flood management has an important role to play, offering solutions that not only reduce flood risk but create a more resilient landscape for the benefit of people and nature.
Led by Trent Rivers Trust, funded by Aviva in partnership with WWF-UK, this project will deliver a catchment-scale natural flood management project in a WWF Exemplar Landscape: the River Soar. The project will demonstrate the benefits of coordinated investment in natural flood management interventions alongside community engagement. Together, we are working to reduce flooding through natural solutions to build more resilient communities for the future. Flood risk is real and our landscapes need to adapt.
