Catchment Management Modelling Platform

Aims and objectives

What are we doing and why?

The overall objective of the Catchment Management for Water Quality project is to promote a change in culture towards greater collaborative working and improved accessibility and effective use of existing models and tools developed over many years and to encourage a move away from ‘silo management’ where each problem is addressed in isolation.

The aims of the Catchment Management for Water Quality project are:

  • to provide better access to data and modelling through the development of a web-based data and modelling platform;
  • to explore approaches to enable more integrated modelling to deliver holistic solutions for multiple pollutants, services & policies;
  • to support the development of a community of practitioners, policy makers and scientists to develop future questions and encourage joint working.  

Improved access to and integration among data and models to address key questions in catchment management for water quality and wider ecosystem services, providing a more holistic view to inform scientific understanding and policy development.
