What evidence does SEPA need to deliver RMBP objectives for 2027 for rural diffuse pollution pressures?

Rural diffuse pollution is the main cause of downgrades to the water quality of Scotland.  The objective for this workshop was to confirm the evidence gaps in our understanding of rural diffuse pollution, which are hindering the delivery of the ambitious RBMP improvement objectives set for 2027.

Experts attended the workshop to help SEPA understand the state-of-knowledge and determine what the priorities should be for research and evidence gathering for the next six years.
