Partnership Funding is on track to bring up to £140 million in external funding over the four years to 2015, compared with £13 million during the previous four years. This is in addition to the £3.2 billion we have invested in Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management over this parliament.

According to an independent evaluation, 25% of contributions to schemes came from the private sector; the remainder from local authorities and other public bodies.
