Principle 10 - The reference to enhancing areas to be resilient is good sense. Where engineering measures are concerned we recommend a presumption for "soft" solutions that work with natural systems and are generally more sustainable. For example, natural wetlands can help with water storage and moderating run off in addition to proving attractive environments for people and wildlife.
