The Community of Practice (CoP) Group was set up by iCASP to bring together people working on different natural flood management projects across Yorkshire. The meetings provide a forum for networking, learning and disseminating best practice: they are designed to build regional capacity amongst NFM practitioners through sharing knowledge and discussing challenges and opportunities. The meetings enable participants to undertake informal continuing professional development (CPD). Many of the meetings take place on sites where NFM interventions have been installed to allow a tour guided by those who have designed and installed the NFM measures.
CoP meetings are quarterly and by invitation only. If you would like to attend a meeting, please email iCASP@leeds.ac.uk and title your email “NFM Community of Practice invitations”.
Over summer 2020 the value of the NFM CoP has been analysed by an MSc student from University of Leeds. Find out more about the findings.
The resources presented here are grouped by meeting. As new meetings take place, additional resources will be added. Because of the original file sizes, all the presentations have been saved as PDF files so any animations, transitions or graphics are now static. If you use these resources, please acknowledge the author and iCASP – please let us know where you use them so we can track how they are used.
