Catchment Based Approach

The Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) is an inclusive, civil society-led initiative that works in partnership with Government, Local Authorities, Water Companies, businesses and more, to maximise the natural value of our environment.

CaBA partnerships are actively working in all 100+ river catchments across England and cross-border with Wales, directly supporting achievement of many of the targets under the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan.


A learning resource

The main section of the site is the Learn section that boasts a wealth of useful content to professionals and those interested in catchment management.

The Learn section on the previous website had become overly complicated with duplicate content and unintuitive navigation. To ensure we created a solution fit for purpose and extensive planning phase was undertake to help the CaBA team identify which taxonomies to use that both categorised resources logically and made sense to professionals and the wider community alike when filtering.

Finally a period of user testing was undertaken to identify the most user friendly layout between 2 options.

The search facility searches through all available resources including pdfs and images.

Connecting thousands of organisations

The website provides a hub for connecting thousands of organisations across the UK via an extensive catchment directory and a programme specific forum.

Editable stats

An editable statistic panel was built allowing the site admin to decide whether a stat is a number, a percentage or a currency as well as add a relevant icon.
