Integrating natural flood management into payment for outcomes schemes in the Yorkshire Dales
Project Summary: By drawing on modelling, monitoring, and opportunity mapping expertise from other iCASP projects, this project will support a National Trust trial of payment for outcomes with their tenant farmers in the Yorkshire Dales. The trial in partnership with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority will inform Defra’s piloting of new environmental land management schemes (ELMS), and iCASP will specifically focus on the opportunity for delivering natural flood management as an outcome for which farmers and other land managers could be paid.
Project Team: Megan Klaar – University of Leeds, Colin Brown, University of York, National Trust, Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust.
