Catchment Sensitive Farming is a joint initiative between the Environment Agency and Natural England, funded by Defra and the Rural Development Programme for England, working in priority catchments within England.

Evaluation is a core part of the Catchment Sensitive Farming (CSF) project: essential for assessing delivery of objectives and benefits. The first five years of the England Catchment Sensitive Farming Delivery Initiative (ECSFDI) have been evaluated and there is clear evidence to demonstrate that the initiative has met its primary objectives, to:

  1. increase awareness amongst rural land managers and stakeholders of the impact of diffuse water pollution from agriculture
  2. improve soil and land management practices amongst farmers within Priority Catchments
  3. reduce the pollution of water caused by farming within Priority Catchments

 

The evaluation shows that:

  1. CSF advice has been delivered to over 9,000 farms covering an area of 1.3 million hectares. This represents 17 per cent of all farm holdings within Priority Catchments (38 per cent by area) and 45 per cent within targeted sub-catchments (62 per cent by area).
  2. 64% of farms have implemented more than half of the specific recommendations to reduce water pollution – in total 93,000 recommendations were made
  3. monitored pollutant levels have reduced by up to 30%

 

The results of the  evaluation are outlined in a high level summary report: (149kb) and a detailed Phase 1 & 2 Evaluation Report: (5.92mb).

A major new study has found that nitrogen pollution is costing each person in Europe around £130 – £650 a year. The first European Nitrogen Assessment (ENA) led by Professor Mark Sutton from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology , estimates that the annual cost of damage caused by nitrogen across Europe is £60 – £280 billion, more than double the extra income gained from using nitrogen fertilizers in European agriculture.

The report provides EU policymakers with a comprehensive scientific assessment on the consequences of failing to address the problem of nitrogen pollution – and outlines key actions that can be taken to reduce the problem to protect environmental and public health.

 

The four minute long official launch video can be watched on Youtube:. The full text of the ENA is Dezember 1577 stach drake mit einer flotte https://hausarbeithilfe.com/ von fünf schiffen und 166 mann besatzung im geheimen auftrag der königin elisabeth i

The Flood Risk Management Research Consortium (FRMRC) is a multi-disciplinary team of leading researchers undertaking cutting edge research in flood risk management.  Since March 2004 the  research team has generated over 300 journal and conference papers, 20 technical reports and held  over 50 dissemination events.   The Conference programme is designed to showcase the key practical  outputs from the research and allow audience participation in discussing the research outcomes and  shaping the future research agenda.  This free event is also an opportunity for participants to trial some of the tools developed as part of the research.

As a cost effective CPD event, attendance is open to anyone with an interest in flood risk  management research and is free, provided delegate registration details are received by the  19th August 2011 (thereafter an administration charge is payable).

Registration (please provide name and organisation) should be made to Joanne Astbury at /tel 0131 451 4612, School of the Built Environment, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.  Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Click link below.

The Environment Agency is exploring improved ways of engaging with people and organisations that can make a difference to the health of all our inland waters, from source to sea. They want to explore what more can be achieved for the water environment by working together in catchments – areas with several, often interconnected water bodies (rivers, lakes, ground water and coastal waters).
