Representatives from Nottinghamshire County Council who are working in partnership on the FRAMES project also attended.
The conference theme was ‘Can the catchment-based approach (CaBa) bring community flood action and natural flood risk management together?” Agenda here
We were honoured to be invited to give a 15 minute presentation in the afternoon workshops on “Resilient communities – Bringing communities together for resilient areas” on how the Southwell Flood Forum had come together as a community action group – a concept which is apparently not known in much of the European North Sea Region according to Dr Steven Krol, Project Leader of EU Interreg FRAMES from Netherlands.
