Environment Agency Flood Risk Asset Performance Tools

This research project has developed methods, tools and guidance to improve asset management decision-making by identifying where, when and how to intervene to reduce flood risk for least cost and greatest benefit. 


The project developed an overarching framework which groups four component activities: inspection, performance, risk and planning.

This framework facilitates appropriate asset condition and performance assessment, risk analysis and optimisation, supporting the move from reactive to proactive asset management. It promotes whole life analysis and a risk-based approach, applicable for both fluvial and coastal environments.
