Flooding workstream 2 – Strategic and spatial responses

The purpose of this workstream is to review existing catchment planning and other spatial / strategic practices currently occurring across Wales to learn the lessons from existing partnerships. This study will look to pinpoint barriers and seek to make recommendations on how these may be overcome and explore proposing structures and resources for enabling strategic, integrated partnership working at a catchment / coastal zone scale.

The key engagement messages for this workstream are:

  • Why isn’t coastal/catchment planning/partnership working happening more across Wales?
  • Where is it happening and working?
  • How can coastal/catchment working be set up to achieve long-term and multi-benefit outcomes? e.g. 100-year time horizons & resilience to climate hazards
  • What needs to change to unlock effective coastal/catchment planning and partnership working?
