CFM (Creating new landscapes for flood risk management) is an action project that seeks to change perceptions of flooding and develop common principles for relevant decision-making. The objective is to promote new sustainable landscapes in planning that combine water issues with nature conservation, agriculture, building and recreation. The investment component, involving the construction of a retention basin, is intended as a pilot project to test theories, models and methods of public communications and decision-making processes and how to monitor them. Although the physical infrastructure will benefit one partner, a transnational benefit is sought for the whole partnership through the transfer of experience and testing of techniques throughout the construction and evaluation phases. Involving six project partners from four Member States, this UK-led project, which seeks to consolidate a transnational approach to sustainable flood-risk management, seeks to tackle traditional territorial planning approaches and put forward alternative ways of tackling flooding that maintain â€˜normalâ€™ land uses by managing â€˜riskâ€™ more effectively.
