The Environment Agency has received £5.9 million from the European Union for flood risk management work (including flood defences) over the last 20 years and will continue to look at the possibility of applications to the European Union for flood defence. Flood risk management is a devolved matter and information from the Environment Agency relates to England and Wales only.
