DEFRA commissioned a Quick Scoping Review (QSR) addressing the question of what international examples there might be of private funding of FCERM management measures. The QSR required a literature and web search coupled with interviews with relevant professionals. Our QSR revealed that while there is a significant body of evidence that shows a widespread aspiration to have private funding of such defences and measures there are only limited examples where this had been put into practice. Where international examples were found they were often found to be either site specific or a function of the capacity of local authorities to obtain private funding. This presentation will describe the methodology used, the context of the QSR, drawing on the work of other researchers in developing the aspiration for shared funding of FCERM, and will examine UK examples. The primary focus will be on examples of private funding from the United States, Australia, Malaysia and Spain. Some conclusions are drawn as to what has enabled the success of private funding of FCERM and what inhibits the uptake of private funding. Finally there is a discussion of the applicability of the methods and approaches in the discussed examples to the United Kingdom context.
