Natural Flood Management - Chris Short

  • 1. NATURAL FLOOD MANAGEMENT LETTING NATURE DO WHAT NATURE DOES Chris Short, CCRI University of Gloucestershire
  • 2. So you know what to expect • Expectations and scope • 1. Starting at the top • 2. Holding back the river • 3. Being part of the solution • Q&A #CCRIflood
  • 3. Expectations • Sensitive topic • Still need flood defence – Additional to … – In combination with … • Won’t cover everything.
  • 4. Outline main areas • Clearly a very current topic • Usual suspects in coverage – Scapegoats & protecting people over nature
  • 5. Outline main areas • Clearly a very current topic • Usual suspects in coverage – Scapegoats & protecting people over nature • Start at the top not the bottom
  • 6.
  • 7. Outline main areas • Clearly a very current topic • Usual suspects in coverage – Scapegoats & protecting people over nature • Start at the top not the bottom • Partnership approach in Gloucestershire
  • 8. Outline main areas • Clearly a very current topic • Usual suspects in coverage – Scapegoats & protecting people over nature • Start at the top not the bottom • Partnership approach in Gloucestershire • Everyone can play a part
  • 9. Starting at the top • Rain will mostly fall on agricultural land • Aim: Soak in not run off the surface • What happens if it doesn’t?
  • 10.
  • 11. Starting at the top • Rain will mostly fall on agricultural land • Aim: Soak in not run off the surface • What happens if it doesn’t? • Not what the farmer wants • So what can be done?
  • 12.
  • 13. This is the conventional approach
  • 14.
  • 16.
  • 17. Some comments on trees • Where should they go? • Where will we get them from? • Who will look after them?
  • 18. Hold back the river • Damage from momentum • Multiple small-scale structures • Leaky dams
  • 19.
  • 20.
  • 21. Hold back the river • Damage from momentum • Multiple small-scale structures • Leaky dams, • Bunds
  • 22.
  • 23.
  • 24. Hold back the river • Damage from momentum • Multiple small-scale structures • Leaky dams, • Bunds • Attenuation areas
  • 25.
  • 26.
  • 27. Hold back the river • Damage from momentum • Multiple small-scale structures • Leaky dams, bunds • Attenuation areas • Collective impact, low cost and natural
  • 29.
  • 30. Being part of the solution • Communities coming together
  • 31. • Changes afoot in Victoria, London
  • 32.
  • 33. Being part of the solution • Alternative to hard surfacing front gardens • Better communication • Shared problem solving
  • 34. Closing thoughts • Joined up thinking, cumulative impact • Complimenting existing defences • Partnership is key • Working with nature, • We can all play a part in LETTING NATURE DO WHAT NATURE DOES
  • 35. THANK YOU, TIME FOR QUESTIONS
