Abstract Submission Date:
May 31, 2011
An International Conference aimed at scientists, policy makers, farmers and land managers. Jointly hosted by the Irish Agricultural Catchments Programme (Teagasc / DAFF) and the UK Demonstration Test Catchment Projects (Defra / EA).
This conference will bring together international experts to address the questions:
â€¢ Can we manage agricultural catchments for economic and environmental objectives?
â€¢ Where are we seeing successes and why?
These questions will be explored in four themes:
Scale issues - networks, observatories and farms. What works best for which stakeholders?
Catchment uncertainty - empirical and modelling experiences; uncertainties in science & policy
Counting the cost - socio-economic implications of catchment-scale agri environmental measures
Case Studies - examples of environmental mitigation policies and evaluation science; future challenges
