star this property answer text <p>Coastal change, through erosion or flooding, has always been a risk for those living and working by the sea.</p><p> </p><p>The Environment Agency has strategic oversight of Shoreline Management Plans (20 in England), which are the responsibility of Coastal Protection Authorities. These plans set the direction and preferred management option over a 100 year timeframe and are under-pinned by evidence and a high level economic, social, and environmental assessment.</p><p> </p><p>Over the next three years, we and the Environment Agency (EA) are working closely with the coastal authorities, including funding of £1 million, to refresh Shoreline Management Plans, to ensure that there is consistency and that they are using the best, most up to date evidence. This programme will ensure the Shoreline Management Plans and Coastal Protection Authorities remain effective in light of the most recent UK climate change predictions which will be published later this month.</p><p> </p><p>The EA are also funding a £23 million, five year programme of regional coastal monitoring by these groups, to support decision making.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In October the Government announced £50,000 to support two large-scale pollinator projects in Devon and Hampshire and £60,000 of funding to develop and test pollinator habitat mapping and to help voluntary bodies and land managers to create pollinator-friendly landscapes.</p><p> </p><p>We have supported two major events in 2018 to raise awareness of the importance of bees and encourage people to take action. In July, we put on a week-long ‘Bees’ Needs’ event in Carnaby Street (renamed ‘Carnabee’ Street for the week). In November, in collaboration with the Green Flag Award scheme, we organised the Bees’ Needs Champions Awards at Kew Gardens to recognise and celebrate exemplary initiatives undertaken by local authorities, universities, community groups, universities and bee farmers to support bees and other insects.</p><p> </p><p>To improve our understanding of the status of pollinators, we have been funding a new UK-wide Pollinator Monitoring Scheme which will report next year. Following scientific evidence that neonicotinoid pesticides are harmful to bees and other pollinators, all outdoor usage will be withdrawn from 19 December 2018.</p><p> </p><p>To improve honey bee health, we have maintained an extensive programme of advisory visits and training events to improve beekeepers knowledge of bee pests and diseases and good husbandry practices. Early reporting of Asian hornet by beekeepers has been instrumental in enabling us to tackle several outbreaks this year.</p><p> </p><p>These build on the work undertaken, with the invaluable support of a range of partners to the deliver the National Pollinator Strategy for England, published in 2014. Furthermore the Government introduced a Wild Pollinator and Farm Wildlife Package to Countryside Stewardship in 2015 to make it easier for farmers to take action to create habitat for pollinators.</p><p> </p>
