November 2016: Water Friendly Farming – interim results and perspectives from the project

Water Friendly Farming – interim results and perspectives from the projectA landscape-scale experiment into multiple benefits of catchment management

  • Can catchment management improve soils and protect freshwaters?
  • If we hold back water on farmland will it prevent floods further down the catchment?
  • Will changing land management improve water quality?
  • How can we stop the loss of sensitive freshwater plants and animals from the farmed landscape?

At the Game and Wildlife Conservation APPG on 8 November, we will present the latest research results from the Water Friendly Farming project as a focus for discussion about the potential multiple public and private benefits associated with managing the land to protect freshwaters and services they provide.
