Centre of expertise for waters crew

Centre of Expertise for Waters (CREW)

  • Commissioned April 2011

  • Runs for 5 years with 1 year rolling projects & call down service

  • Programmes focus on basic and strategic research

    • Maintains capacity; new methodologies; new frontiers

  • CREW about translating existing knowledge for immediate policy needs

  • Creating new products through:

    • Synthesis, reviews, new applications, new data combinations

    • Synergistic partnerships

  • www.crew.ac.uk


Resas programme 1 environmental change

RESAS: Programme 1 – Environmental Change

Theme 2: Water & Renewable Energy

Work Package 2.4 Methods for mitigating and adapting to flood risk Deliverables:

  • 2.4.1: Evidence and demonstration of the effectiveness, costs and benefits of NFM measures in a Scottish Context

  • 2.4.2: Tools and Evidence to help practitioners assess where NFM is feasible and appropriate

  • 2.4.3: Understanding and modelling seasonal shifts in the environment and the implications for flooding and water conservation


Research and development in scotland

Work Package 2.4 (Cont)

  • Deliverables

    • 2.4.4: Barriers, opportunities and routes for implementing NFM via behavioural and land use change by communities, landowners and planners

    • 2.4.5: Identification of opportunities for flood risk management measures to deliver multiple objectives (including flooding, water quality, economy, amenity and biodiversity);

    • 2.4.6: Identification of evaluation of potential negative impacts of flood risk management activities, including those on animal health and welfare and how they may be managed


Work package 2 4 projects

Work Package 2.4 Projects

  • Project 1: Catchment based assessment and demonstration of Natural Flood Management (NFM) opportunities and constraints (Deliverables 2.4.1, 2.4.5 and 2.4.6)

  • Project 2: Understanding past, present and future characteristics of agricultural catchment adaptation and implications for resilience for flooding and water conservation (Deliverables 2.4.3 and 2.4.6)


Work package 2 4 projects cont

Work Package 2.4 Projects (Cont)

  • Project 3: Understanding the barriers, opportunities and routes for implementing NFM (Deliverable2.4.4)

  • Project 4: The development of guidance for practitioners as to options for NFM that are feasible and appropriate (Deliverable 2.4.2)

  • Project 5: Multiple Benefits of NFM (Deliverable 2.4.5 & 2.4.6)


Sepa strategic research strategy

SEPA Strategic Research Strategy


Sepa future research priorities

SEPA Future Research Priorities

  • Tracking and communicating cumulative uncertainties when assessing flood risk

  • Use of probabilistic tools and messages in flood forecasting and warning services (& the tools that underpin these)

  • How to value the impacts of flooding on various receptors i.e. CNI, roads, transport, agriculture
