One Planet Prosperity: Our Flooding Services Strategy

Closed 11 Dec 2020

Opened 8 Oct 2020


One Planet Prosperity: Our Flooding Services Strategy will allow SEPA to help Scotland to prepare more powerfully for future increased flooding. It sets out how we will refocus our flooding services in response to the climate emergency and how we will be ready to tackle the challenges of future flood risk. It puts Scotland’s people and places at the heart of our work and will build resilience to flood risk.

The strategy maps out our ideas for how we can do our flooding work in the tougher future that Scotland faces. We are committing to a focused 10 year plan that will enable sustainable, adaptable places, create transformative partnerships and ensure a voice for those communities most disadvantaged as well as provide trusted information for people to make decisions on.
