The Spey Catchment Initiative (SCI) is a partner organisation set up to take forward key actions from the Spey Catchment Management Plan (2017 – 2022). A project officer is employed and supported by the Spey Fishery Board with core funding currently provided by the Cairngorms National Park Authority, Scottish Natural Heritage and Diageo.
Run by a steering group of representatives from its partner organisations, SCI delivers practical multi-benefit projects, coordinates action and engages with a wider stakeholder group of landowners, managers, recreational users, communities and industry on a variety of issues and topics.
Activity is focussed on four priority themes:
- Delivering national and local government objectives for 2017-2022
- Sustainable flood management, focusing on Natural Flood Management (NFM) opportunities and demonstrating NFM techniques
- Improving riparian, riverine and wetland environments for multiple benefits
- Education, awareness raising & getting people involved in the catchment
