Our “catchment model” provides a tangible demonstration of Natural Flood Management (NFM) by recreating 2 river catchments in miniature – 1 catchment featuring various NFM measures and another reflecting a more typical rural landscape.
Tweed Forum is a member of the UNESCO HELP programme. HELP recognised the “standard-setting” work of the Forum and particularly the Catchment Management Planning Initiative.
Based around the Bowmont-Glen, Eddleston and Wooler Water, the aim of this project was to help develop better resilience to flooding, in rural areas, through natural flood management.
In 2011 we were involved in a fascinating workshop with 3 other river management organisations from the Motueka River in New Zealand, the Fraser River in Canada and the Aberdeenshire Dee.
