Protect-NFM Film

In collaboration with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) we have made a film about the research work being carried out by the Protect-NFM team in the Pennines. The film shows how NERC science is carried out in close collaboration with partners, in particular the Environment Agency and Moors for the Future. It explains how the research has generated quantitative and qualitative sources of evidence to understand NFM measures focused around moorland restoration works and their effectiveness in reducing flood risk for downstream communities.

We plan to make films about the parallel Landwise and Q-NFM research projects when Covid restrictions are eased.
