Yorkshire FAS Project Workshop

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:

  1. Modelling the effectiveness of Natural Flood Management as part of maintaining protection levels afforded by engineered solutions as risk modifies (climate change, planned development)
  2. 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
  3. Opportunity mapping to design schemes to address multiple policy objectives (as well as flood risk mitigation): water quality, biodiversity, carbon, food
