Flood and coastal defence
Rural land use solutions such as the creation of wetlands and washlands, and the managed re-alignment of coasts and rivers are part of a wide portfolio of possible responses to flood and coastal erosion risk. Rural land management techniques such as cultivation practice and woodland creation might play a further part in managing flood risk at catchment level.
The Openfields library holds a range of materials on rural flood defence and coastal defence research outcomes and practices.
