Long-term investment scenarios

An outline of the Environment Agency’s long-term investment scenarios for flood and coastal risk management. The scenarios draw on new work to describe a wide range of futures based on climate change and development, the outcomes from different levels of investment in flood and coastal risk management, and the economic optimum level of investment. The scenarios continue to provide expert advice to government on potential policy and funding changes.
