FRAMES (Flood Resilient Areas by Multi-layEr Safety Approach) - is a €8 million project with 50% co-finance from the European Regional Development Fund, additional funding provided by The Environment Agency and Maidstone Borough Council, the project involves organisations from the UK, Belgium, Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands, to reduce the consequences of flooding and help prepare communities for climate change. This is a pilot project in Kent in the Medway catchment, working with many local partners, such as local residents and councils, to deliver Natural Flood Management (NFM), that will reduce flood peaks; find out more here.
Holistic Water for Horticulture (HWH) - Through the Courtauld Commitment 2025, South East Rivers Trust, Kent County Council and NIAB EMR have teamed up to develop this project, which encourages poly tunnel growers to modify and improve their on-site set-up in order to improve water security and return excess water to the environment.
