Our grateful thanks to Rikke, the team from SEGES and our hosts at Dronninglund for organising such an excellent meeting.
Policy makers visit the Overijssel, NL case study
In April, advisers from the Water Framework and Nitrates Directives visited the Boeren voor Drinkwater project, the multi-actor platform that FAIRWAY is working with in the Overijssel case study. In 2017, nitrogen surplus in the Boeren voor Drinkwater project area was 70 kg N/ha, well below the target value of 100 kg N/ha and well below the national average. Nitrate leaching of nitrate is therefore also lower, a trend that is apparent from the levels measured in the groundwater.
For more details of the discussions that took place (and a very nice video about the project) see Boeren voor Drinkwater's website.
