We are excited to announce two upcoming talks with Professor Adrian (Adie) Collins, hydrologist and head of Sustainable Agriculture Sciences at Rothamsted Research North Wyke in the United Kingdom.
Young Professionals Training:
Source water protection at the policy-science-stakeholder nexus: a narrative from England
Wednesday March 24th Webinar at 11am EDT
Adie's presentation on March 24th will be 20-30 minutes in length with the remaining hour open for discussion.
YP webinar description: In the upcoming forWater webinar, Adrian will be talking briefly about the implementation of a program by the UK government whereby funding for improved agricultural management strategies was acquired through changes to water rates, with broad public support. This initiative sits at the nexus of issues involving land management, water quality and society, and provides a fascinating example of science-policy interaction with an ecosystem services twist.
