7. Brief description of project
8. Indicative size of project based on         PLEASE DELETE THOSE WHICH DO NOT APPLY
total project cost*

9. Please indicate below which elements
of the Working with Nature philosophy
were achieved and how:
     a. Were steps taken to understand
        the environment before any work
        was started on the development
        of the design of the project?


If yes, please briefly explain what was
done or how this was achieved.
     b. Were stakeholders or potential
         partners involved from the very
         beginning in the initial process of
         identifying potential options or
         solutions and agreeing on a
         preferred option (i.e. instead of
         being consulted on already
         defined options)?


If yes, please explain who was involved
and how this was achieved.
     c. Was a solution identified which
         provided a clear ‘win-win’?


If yes, please explain how the project
also met others’ objectives (e.g. nature
conservation, flood risk management,
fisheries, recreation, etc.) and what was
achieved.
     d. Was the project designed to
         work with and make use of
         natural processes (e.g. ‘letting
         nature do the work’)?


If yes, please explain what was done and
how this was achieved.
     e. Did the project include benefits
         for nature or other environmental
         enhancements beyond what was
         legally required?

If yes, please explain what was achieved
and how.
    f.   Did the project follow, in order,
         the steps described in the
         Working with Nature Position
         Paper?

         1.   Establish project objectives
         2.   Understand environment
         3.   Involve stakeholders
         4.   Begin initial project design

If yes, please explain how this was
achieved and what difficulties, if any,
were experienced.
10. If you answered yes to any of the
above questions, please explain your
reasons/motivation for taking this
approach.

11. What were the cost implications of        PLEASE DELETE THOSE WHICH DO NOT APPLY
adopting the elements of Working with
Nature discussed above?                       Costs were lower than the conventional approach to
                                              this type of project (i.e. cost savings were made)

                                              Additional funds were provided from third parties

                                              No extra costs compared to conventional approach

                                              Costs were marginally or significantly higher than a
                                              conventional approach to this type of project (please
                                              answer Question 11a. below)

Please highlight any of the options that      Other cost implications (please describe):
applies and provide a brief explanation.
    a. If relevant, approximately what
    percentage of the total cost was an
    additional cost associated with
    adopting these elements of Working
    with Nature?

12. Did existing legislation help or hinder   The approach adopted helped to meet legal
your application of the Working with          obligations
Nature philosophy?
                                              Some of what was done was needed to meet existing
                                              legal requirements; part exceeded those
                                              requirements

                                              Problems were experienced with existing legislation
                                              (e.g. is existing legislation too prescriptive/inflexible?)

                                              The approach was taken despite legal requirements

                                              Legal requirements prevented (some of) the Working
                                              with Nature philosophy being applied

Please highlight any of the options that      Other implications (please describe):
applies and provide a brief explanation
13. Please indicate where further
information can be obtained including, as
available, links to project reports; design
standards; project website; key contact
person, etc.

short, suitable caption including the
nature and location of the project and the
subject of the photograph
