The Future Fens: Integrated Adaptation

About the project

The Future Fens Integrated Adaptation (FFIA) project brings together many different but key sectors, organisations and people into a partnership that builds on the strategic work across sectors, aiming to draw on international experience to lead, develop and deliver a truly integrated water management approach for the area.

  • Protect and enhance the environment
  • Maintain much-needed food security
  • Develop new water resources to help meet future needs
  • Alleviate risks from drought and flood
  • Lock carbon in natural systems
  • Enable greater Investment to a region that includes some of the UK’s most deprived areas.
