Details

This project was set up as part of the Defra Flood Management Demonstration Scheme to provide evidence to show how integrated land management change can contribute to reducing local flood risk while improving ecosystem services within the catchment, such as landscape quality, biodiversity, carbon stewardship, water quality, amenity and recreation.

This research summarises the water quality component of the scheme and was a collaborative project between the University of Exeter, The National Trust and the Environment Agency.
