This report is the result of work undertaken by WRc and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology to review eutrophication-related research and development and to make recommendations on areas of priority research that should be considered by the Environment Agency. The principal objectives of the work were:
- To review completed, ongoing and proposed eutrophication R&D reports;
- To identify areas requiring future R&D investment and to develop a cost-benefit framework to prioritise these areas in terms of the Agency’s business needs over a five year horizon;
- To investigate the relevance of European and non-European eutrophication-related research and development to the Environment Agency;
- To identify potential areas for collaborative research nationally and internationally.
