Transcript

  • 1. TheTamar Plan Developing a shared catchment vision
  • 2. It provide us with…. – food and materials – energy / fuel – drinking water It regulates…. – climate gases – flooding & drought It also gives us areas for…. – culture – recreation – habitat for wildlife A catchment provides many Ecosystem Services
  • 3. Many pressures act to reduce ecosystem health
  • 4. Reduced ecosystem health impairs service provision
  • 5. Heavily exploited ecosystem ‘Natural’ ecosystem Provisioning services Regulating services Cultural services Crops Meat Timber Spaces forWildlife Recreation Pest control Water regulation Water purification What services are we currently getting?
  • 6. Developing a shared understanding The Ecosystem ServicesWorking Groups (1 – 5) Water Quality: The provision of clean water into the aquatic environment for the benefit of river ecosystem health, recreational safety and drinking water supply. Water Quantity: The regulation of water movement in the landscape to ensure that base-flows are maintained and to reduce the risk of flooding. Space for Wildlife: The protection and enhancement of functional networks of habitat to support healthy wildlife populations and biodiversity at a landscape scale. Carbon Sequestration: The regulation of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases through land management. Recreation, Leisure & Culture: The provision of accessible spaces and resources for recreation, leisure and cultural activities and to increase health and wellbeing. A participatory stakeholder-led approach…
  • 7. A participatory stakeholder-led approach…  What services do we get?  Are we getting enough?  What areas effect provision?  What can we do to  provision?  Where should they be targeted?  How is it funded?  What are the outcomes?  Are the new sources of funding? Developing a shared vision & a shared language - Habitat creation - Landuse change - Farm infrastructure - Best practice advice - Stewardship - Water Company - Biodiversity offsetting - Flood Risk - Research findings - Spatial data - Monitoring - Reports & plans
  • 8. Water Quality Is there a problem…where is it experienced…?  Local ecological impacts priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 9. Water Quality Is there a problem…where is it experienced…?  Local ecological impacts priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 10. Water Quality Is there a problem…where is it experienced…?  Local ecological impacts priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 11. Water Quality Is there a problem…where is it experienced…?  Local ecological impacts priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 12. Water Quality Is there a problem…where is it experienced…?  Local ecological impacts priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 13. Water Quality Is there a problem…where is it experienced…?  Local ecological impacts  Distal ecological, social & economic impacts priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 14. Water Quality Is there a problem…where is it experienced…?  Local ecological impacts  Distal ecological, social & economic impacts  Raw drinking water impacts WFD: Article 7 “…avoid deterioration in [water] quality to reduce the level of purification treatment required in the production of drinking water.” priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 15. Water Quality – point sources The contribution of point sources of pollution  Variety of different pollutants  Many different sources  Varying contributions in different locations
  • 16. Ecosystem services: Water regulation & quality The water cycle is one of the fundamental processes we all depend on – priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 17. Ecosystem services: Water regulation & quality The water cycle is one of the fundamental processes we all depend on – Water regulation is dependent on -  Direction of water movement: laterally or vertically  Rate of water movement / timing of release  Interactions with contaminants priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 18. Ecosystem services: Water regulation & quality The water cycle is one of the fundamental processes we all depend on – Some land areas play a  role in water regulation and water quality - Innate characteristics - Condition/health priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 19. Ecosystem services: Water regulation & purification 3 4 3 6 9 62 21 INHERENT RISK PRACTICE Source Receptor We want to understand why water quality is (or is not) degraded in certain locations… +++ Importance/opportunity priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 20. Ecosystem services: Water regulation & purification Seasonally wet gley 3 4 3 6 9 62 21 INHERENT RISK PRACTICE Identifying areas of high importance/risk to water regulation - Soil type & condition/practices Free-draining brown earth Gley with impeded drainage priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 21. Natural habitat Cultivated land 3 4 3 6 9 62 21 INHERENT RISK PRACTICE Permanent pasture Ecosystem services: Water regulation & purification Identifying areas of high importance/risk to water regulation - Landuse & practice (intensity of use) priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 22. Direct connection to watercourse Steeply sloping 3 4 3 6 9 62 21 INHERENT RISK PRACTICE Hydrologically connected Ecosystem services: Water regulation & purification Identifying areas of high importance/risk to water regulation - Location, topography & hydrological connectivity priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 23. Water Quality  Soil hydrology & condition • Run-off risk • Leaching risk  Topography (i.e. slope)  Hydrological connectivity • Proximity to watercourse • Flood plain • Surface & sub-surface flow accumulation  Land cover • Natural habitats (wetland, woodland or peatland) • Farmed land (tillage or permanent grass) The group identified land most likely to have an impact on water quality: priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 24. Water Quality – diffuse sources A well established toolbox of measures to reduce rural diffuse pollution
  • 25. Flooding Spaces for wildlife priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 26. DroughtCarbon sequestration priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 27. Land valueRecreational resources priority – opportunity – suitability – risk
  • 28. Bringing it all together…
  • 29. Multifunctional priority areas Toolbox of interventions Habitat creation Landuse change Farm infrastructure Best practice advice Integrated vision for the catchment WIN-WIN “Provider saves” Delivery Framework REGULATION “Polluter pays” INCENTIVES “Provider is paid” WHERE? WHAT? WHO? …& who pays?
  • 30. We now have a shared understanding of what outcomes will come from a better catchment, who will benefit and importantly who might pay…
