Policy Practice Notes on Wetlands as a systemic solution

Dec 08, 2014

There is rising concern about the need to protect water quality at source, rather than relying on heavy inputs of energy and chemicals downstream for cleaning up abstracted supplies. This, together with a greater emphasis on the value of “natural capital”, calls for more systemic management of land and water, including natural solutions involving wetlands at the land/water interface. Water companies, regulators and landowners are all showing increasing interest in exploring the opportunities offered by wetlands to deliver benefits using Payment for Ecosystem Services and other novel solutions.

The latest policy and practice note on Wetlands as a systemic solution is now available on line on the LWEC website
