Forum issues addressed by case study

How can I know if land management will be effective?

  • Can I transfer these measures or approaches to other catchments? Will they be less or more effective?
  • Can I transfer conclusions on how well land management works from the catchment to the national scale?
What did we find?

This case study uses a Dynamic Typology Tool (DTT) to combine spatially explicit datasets describing landscape character and management and identify homologous areas of agricultural potential, natural environment quality and risk.  The DTT provides national coverage and local output suitable for stakeholder engagement in study areas. Application of the tool can aid identification, targeting and prioritisation of land-use opportunities for management of water quality.
