The objective of WATERPROTECT is to create an integrated multi-actor participatory framework including innovative instruments that enable monitoring, financing and implementation of effective management practices and measures for the protection of water sources. The Irish Actionlab (one of seven labs across the EU ) is led by Teagasc in collaboration with the Irish Agricultural Catchments Programme (ACP) , Wexford County Council, Glanbia and Ulster University is aimed at assessing the efficacy, uptake and implementation of mitigation measures, to protect water resources in a rural agricultural environment.
The EU Horizon 2020 project, WaterProtect will host a workshop on “Science, water governance and policy implementations: Up-scaling to European level”. Stakeholders will present Irelands approach in reaching water quality targets with the emphasis on drinking water protection from pesticides and nutrients. There will also be examples presented by project partners from Denmark and Belgium. This event is being hosted by Teagasc and the Wexford County Council and will be held in the Wexford County Council. Click on Draft Agenda above for more details.Tweet
