Partnership funding and collaborative delivery of local flood risk management: “a practical resource for LLFAs” - FD2643

Description
Local Flood Risk Management (LFRM), as defined in the Flood and Water Management Act, will require collaborative and co-ordinated approaches of a number of different partnering organisations, led by lead local flood authorities. To realise the potential to reduce local flood risk will require innovative and new ways of funding, through joint funding of schemes and collaborative investment across partnering organisations.

Currently, joint funding and collaborative investment to reduce local flood risk is not widely implemented, and this can partially be attributed to a lack of understanding of the funding mechanisms, approval processes, and opportunities to implement joint funding and collaborative investment across partnering organisations.

This study will identify the funding mechanisms and approval processes of partnering organisations and will identify the current issues and challenges which prevent wider implementaton of joint funding and collaborative investment. It will identify practical approaches, alongside case study examples of where joint funding and collaborative investment to reduce local flood risk has been achieved, which can be used by lead local flood authorities to secure investment in local flood risk. The principal output from the project will be good practice guidance to support lead local flood authorities
