At this invitation-only workshop, participants from the Universities of Leeds, York and Sheffield will be working with stakeholders involved in Yorkshire Flood Alleviation Schemes to co-design projects.
Projects will be focused around the three selected topics for the workshop:
- Modelling the effectiveness of Natural Flood Management as part of maintaining protection levels afforded by engineered solutions as risk modifies (climate change, planned development)
- Assessing the benefits and costs of flood risk mitigation options (including in low flow contexts) on inter alia: water quality, biodiversity, carbon, well-being/health, air quality, soil erosion, quality of place, recreation and leisure, tourism
- Opportunity mapping to design schemes to address multiple policy objectives (as well as flood risk mitigation): water quality, biodiversity, carbon, food
