UK floods - reduce risk through rewilding, says new report

26 Sep 2016, Floodlist

A new report from Rewilding Britain highlights the positive impact it could have on UK’s flood risk. Flooding costs the UK economy more than £1 billion annually, rising near £5 billion in a bad year. Rewilding has the cobenefit of creating vibrant natural landscapes while also soaking up greater quantities of CO2, helping bring the economy towards carbon neutrality.
