Previous Projects


The Severn Estuary Partnership has been involved in a number of important projects, both locally and internationally:


The All-Wales Young People’s Climate Change Forum (YoCCo Forum) has been funded by the Beacons Project for a period of 18 months (December 2009 until 2011). It is a collaboration between Cardiff University, the Wales Youth Forum for Sustainable Development, the Severn Estuary Partnership and Techniquest. MORE


The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers. MORE


One of the most significant threats to the estuary over the next hundred years comes from climate change. With significant urban development and critical infrastructure associated with the low-lying coasts of the Severn Estuary, a key consideration is protecting these assets from flooding and erosion. Storms and storm surges have already occurred throughout history on the Bristol Channel, and have been the cause of substantial damage and flooding from the sea both in the past and more recently.
