The Government has committed to develop a national set of indicators to monitor trends over time in tackling flood and coastal erosion risk in England. To inform the development of long-term indicators an Environment Agency led research project Measuring resilience to flooding and coastal change was published in November 2022. Further research is now exploring data collection and development of potential indicators through the £200 million flood and coastal resilience innovation programme. The Government will provide a further update on progress to develop a national set of indicators in due course.
