October 2020 NFM CoP Webinar

On 7 October 2020, iCASP, Leeds City Council, the Environment Agency and Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust invited the NFM CoP to take part in a webinar to provide an update on the CIRIA NFM manual and discuss the future direction of the CoP, its objectives and future events.

The event featured three presentations with Q&A. These were followed by smaller group ‘breakout’ sessions to allow further discussion and feedback on two topics for the CIRIA NFM Manual (design of NFM, and a framework to understand NFM and what it is trying to achieve), as well as the future of the CoP.
