National Flood Risk Assessment (NFRA)

Flood SignThe Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009 introduced a new, more sustainable approach to managing flood risk. At the heart of this new approach is a series of assessments and plans. The National Flood Risk Assessment (NFRA) is the first step in delivering this new approach to flood management. This was formally published, following Ministerial approval, on December 22, 2011.
