Project Title: Review of impacts of rural land use and management on flood generation: short term improvement in modelling and research plan
Description: PROJECT CLOSING STATEMENT:
This report is aimed at those involved in land management. It provides the current position of knowledge and science with respect to land use management and its impact on flood generation. It will be of benefit to those seeking to reduce flood risk through specific land management practices, and those who wish to assess the impact of specific management practices on flood risk.

SUMMARY OBJECTIVE:
To give the current state of information from past and ongoing work of effects of rural land use and soil management on flood generation; to propose and cost a reasoned research programme of inclusion of land management in flood impact estimation.

KEY CUSTOMER PURPOSE:
This is an area of public as well as technical concern. Ad hoc information, of variable quality, is available to inform this debate from both process and modelling studies. A synthesis is required which recognises, inter alia, possible effects of scale. Generic work can be usefully drawn in from beyond UK experience
