Resilient Catchments

Practical partnerships to restore and manage rivers and catchments for the environment and the people living there

Sniffer's resilient catchment work is a virtual network of professionals and stakeholders. We build and share evidence, good practice and experience in aspects of catchment management; enabling partners to work together to scope, design and implement projects and plans to restore and manage rivers and catchments for the environment and the people living there.

We have identified a need for more managed on-the-ground partnership work, stakeholder engagement and consultation. The topics in this hub are focussed on delivering our research projects to the high standard our partners and customers expect, and taking a pro-active role in knowledge exchange.
