Based around the Bowmont-Glen, Eddleston and Wooler Water, the aim of this project is to help develop better resilience to flooding, in rural areas, through natural flood management. It will do so by supporting the development of networks and creative knowledge exchange and cooperation between stakeholders including land managers, members of statutory agencies, and local government, businesses and people.
