The LifE project is the first project to integrate making space for water with zero carbon development and the principles of living with water.
LIFE: Long Term Initiatives for Flood-risk Environments
The aim of the LifE project is to identify ways in which the means of managing flood risk can be integrated within development sites, to help meet objectives for zero carbon, high quality, sustainable development at minimal cost.
The LifE project is one of six projects funded by Defra’s Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management – Innovation Fund, and is part of Defra’s Making Space for Water programme. The Innovation Fund seeks to improve future delivery of flood and coastal erosion risk management, by promoting innovative approaches that contribute towards the development of more holistic and sustainable policy making in the future.
