Welcome to the e-learning site for flood risk management sponsored by Defra, the Environment Agency and the Local Government Association.
This site links with the LGA Flood Risk Portal and has been delivered through the Defra Strategy for Capacity Building for Lead Local Flood Authorities and other Flood Risk management Authorities.
These learning modules are designed to help you to develop an understanding of the key role, responsibilities and relationships associated with the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 (FWMA) and Flood Risk Regulations 2009.
The modules have been written to help LLFAs understand their role and responsibilities. Other sections cover the role that other partners can play in managing flood risk. The aim is to understand the context in which flood risk management decisions need to be made and, where appropriate, the material gives direct links to key guidance.
As knowledge and experience is still evolving following the implementation of the FWMA, the e-learning modules will also evolve. If you have any feedback, examples of good practice that can add value to help others or general comments on the e-learning, please email: LFRM_Capacity_Building@environment-agency.gov.uk .
