Catchment Based Approach

The catchment based approach (CaBA) is a community-led approach that engages people and groups from across society to help improve our precious water environments. It is delivered through a network of some 100 partnerships which bring together local stakeholders who agree to work together on collaborative, integrated catchment management. CaBA partnerships are in a perfect position to support priorities set out in the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan, including:

  • 'Using and managing land sustainably’
  • ‘Recovering nature and enhancing the beauty of landscapes’
  • ‘Connecting people with the environment to improve health and wellbeing’
  • ‘Increasing resource efficiency, and reducing pollution and waste’
