Ecosystem Services Approach for the Urban Water Environment

WRL are working with Defra and the Environment Agency to develop an Ecosystem Services Approach for the Urban Water Environment. This project will draw on best practice from community groups, industry and academia to reshape and build on our existing Ecosystem Services (ESS) visualisation tools and techniques. This exciting project will support Defra’s Urban Diffuse Pollution strategy and the Catchment Based Approach, as well as Defra’s Water Availability & Quality Evidence Plan through  developing research on the value of water and the wide range of products and services it provides, to promotes and support it’s sustainable, efficient and equitable use.
