Catchment Management Modelling Platform

Case Studies

Guides to potential benefits 

A key activity of the Community Forum has been the identification of important current and emerging questions relating to policy development and implementation in the area of water quality management. Data and models selected to explore these questions have been prioritised for availability on CaMMP.  The potential benefits of using these data and models can be demonstrated through a series of case studies.

These case studies, a resource for the stakeholder community, are available below complete with video interviews with members of the project team and stakeholders.

Multiple pollutant and ecosystem services responses to land management policies and agri-environment interventions at the farm to catchment scale
Effectiveness of land management policies and agri-environment interventions for reducing pollutant loads and maintaining environmental quality at the national scale.
Costs and benefits of mitigation measures to reduce pollutant concentrations for the protection of drinking water in river-systems upstream of intakes.
Effectiveness of pollution control measures under scenarios of future climate and land cover change at the catchment scale
Uncertainty in ecological responses to water quality control measures at the river basin scale
Effects of input data quality and quantity on evaluation of land management policies and agri-environment interventions at catchment to national scales
Interpolation of model outputs and data from catchment to national scales and monitored to non-monitored sites

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.
