Northern Runoffs into Profits

Description

While the agriculture and mining extractive industries are important sectors for the economy of Northern Periphery and Arctic (NPA) areas, their activities cause significant risk to the vulnerable environment through water and land pollution. Nutrients in agricultural runoff are one of the major contributors to eutrophication and algae blooms. The overreaching goal of WaterPro is to develop eco-efficient tools and models for SRM practices and environmental protection for the NPA sparsely populated region. This will be done through development of a Tool-Box of good management practices and communication platform for agriculture and mining extraction runoff management.
