Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management appraisal guidance REF: 633

This study consisted of the revision and updating of the flood and coastal erosion risk management guidance. Focus was on improving the quality of economic appraisals by increasing consideration of  environmental and social issues through partnership working with communities, businesses, utilities, etc.
