Tweed Forum is a valued member of the UK and international research community. Here you can find a selection of projects and initiatives we’ve been involved in over the years.
Our “catchment model” provides a tangible demonstration of Natural Flood Management (NFM) by recreating 2 river catchments in miniature – 1 catchment featuring various NFM measures and another reflecting a more typical rural landscape.
UNESCO HELP Programme
Tweed Forum is a member of the UNESCO HELP programme. HELP recognised the “standard-setting” work of the Forum and particularly the Catchment Management Planning Initiative.
Flood Management in Borderlands (2010-2012)
Based around the Bowmont-Glen, Eddleston and Wooler Water, the aim of this project was to help develop better resilience to flooding, in rural areas, through natural flood management.
Insight Workshop (2011)
In 2011 we were involved in a fascinating workshop with 3 other river management organisations from the Motueka River in New Zealand, the Fraser River in Canada and the Aberdeenshire Dee.
