Funding

funding

Most NFM projects will require funding for the material and labour required to implement works on the ground. Large scale projects such as river restoration will also require funding for the necessary scoping and pre-works assessments and design and, in some cases, a payment to the landowner for the services provided and costs incurred. There are a number of potential sources of funding for these various components including the Scottish Rural Development Programme, Government agency funding such as peatland action and private funding such as carbon offset schemes. Local Authorities may also fund NFM measures, especially where it helps to deliver NFM actions outlined in their Local Flood Risk Management Plans or other statutory targets. This topic includes information on these potential funding sources, new funding calls or success stories on novel funding sources.
