Catchment Based Approach right way forward for our rivers

We were delighted to hear Defra’s announcement of the formal introduction of a Catchment Based Approach to river management in England this week, and agree completely that this is the right way ahead for our rivers and for our communities. This approach, trialled in a pilot phase, has proved the key role and contribution to be made by communities and stakeholders in helping to develop and deliver plans for sustainable and healthy rivers.

Thames21 has been a key part of trialling this approach in London, and will continue to be actively involved in helping to ensure that the huge promise of this approach is delivered.

For the full statement and to access the CBA policy, see the Defra website.
