Conservation at a river catchment scale
The Ancholme Catchment Partnership is part of the Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) to collaborative working at a river catchment scale. As a new partnership for 2020, we are currently developing a catchment plan which will be available here soon.
CaBA partnerships are active in all 100+ river catchments across England and Wales, and they directly support the delivery of many of the targets in the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan.
This Catchment Based Approach promotes collaborative working between partners to deliver a range of environmental, social and economic benefits at a landscape and catchment scale. Benefits include:
- Improved water quality
- Enhanced biodiversity
- Reduced flood risk
- Resilience to climate change
- More sustainable business management
- Health and wellbeing benefits to local communities
The partnership so far includes statutory agencies, Local Authorities, water companies, non-governmental organisations and research institutions. We plan to develop further working groups to enhance relationships with land owners and managers and with recreational user groups.
If you have an interest in the River Ancholme, any of its tributaries or water management elsewhere in the catchment and would like to be involved, please contact us at the details below.
