Research Forum and Other Groups
Further information is available from:
The Scottish Government's Environment Group commissioned Sniffer to provide a research and knowledge management service in relation to flood risk management. RISE (Research Information Service for Flood Risk Management), has been of the main tools for delivering this service. It provided a one-stop shop for information on flood risk management research, particularly targeted at Scottish stakeholders but is not currently being updated.
Any reports resulting from the programme and associated Sniffer publications, can be found on Sniffer’s website.
Three core working groups will initially take forward the work of SAIFF: SAIFF comprises a series of working groups overseen by a control board.
Details of the work of these groups is available on the above website.
Advice on flooding matters has been provided to the Scottish Government through a variety of groups and Committees such as the Flooding Bill Advisory Group (FBAG), the Flooding Issues Advisory Committee (FIAC) and the National Technical Advisory Group on Flooding Issues (NTAG). This advice has helped the Scottish Government and public bodies take forward important improvements to how flooding is assessed and managed across Scotland.
Some archives from these groups are available on the Scottish Government website. For example:
