Next Steps

Over the course of the NIA, partners have identified a number of “oven-ready” projects, which deliver our shared objectives.

We will build on this momentum and work more closely with the LNP to deliver the aims and objectives of the NIA by facilitating priority setting and project development, as well as monitoring our performance to help build an evidence base to support future decision making.

Looking at the reasons why nature is so important in the Greater Thames, and learning lessons from previous delivery, we have identified the following priorities (click on the links to read about identified projects):

  • Flood defence
  • Water quality
  • Engaging communities in science
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Co-ordination
  • Habitat creation and restoration
  • Rural economy
  • Natural capital
