Flooding: time for a pro-active, joined-up approach

Flooding: time for a pro-active, joined-up approach

Flooding (c) James Hutton Institute
"We at the James Hutton Institute think a co-ordinated response is right, recognising that the risk of flooding can only be mitigated through the application of a combination of natural solutions, construction measures and innovation.

Scientists at the James Hutton Institute have backed calls for the implementation of a long-term strategy to tackle flood prevention. The House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee have today published their “Flooding: Cooperation across Government” report. The clear message being that even though the water from this winter’s flooding may now have receded; the need to strengthen coordinated, multi-agency action throughout the whole year is a strategic priority.
