Nitrogen Deposition and the Nature Directives: Impacts and Responses: Our Shared Experiences 2014

There is compelling evidence that atmospheric deposition of reactive nitrogen represents a major threat to biodiversity in Europe. This report provides an overview of the presentations and discussions concerning the two themes of the workshop entitled ‘Nitrogen deposition and the Nature Directives: Impacts and Responses: Our shared Experiences’, held in December 2013, which aimed to explore the practical solutions to reduce impacts of deposition of reactive nitrogen compounds.
A series of accounts of the findings and recommendations of the workshop’s working groups is provided in Appendices 1–7. Whilst many of the conclusions and recommendations from the workshop groups contained a high level of detail that was specific to the working group topic, there were a number of recommendations made that were common amongst the groups. These recommendations are brought together in a ‘Conclusions’ section to the report, and are grouped under the two workshop themes:
- Theme 1: Reporting and assessment of nitrogen deposition impacts; and
- Theme 2: Knowledge sharing of practical solutions to reduce nitrogen deposition impacts.
Additionally, cross-cutting recommendations are grouped together into those requiring future collaboration between experts, and those concerning the promotion and sharing of good practice.
Further information on the workshop is available on the Workshop webpage, on The National Archives website. Copies of the presentations given at the workshop are also available.
