The objective of WATERPROTECT is to create an integrated multi-actor participatory framework including innovative instruments that enable monitoring, financing and implementation of effective management practices and measures for the protection of water sources. The Irish Actionlab (one of seven labs across the EU ) is led by Teagasc in collaboration with the Irish Agricultural Catchments Programme (ACP) , Wexford County Council, Glanbia and Ulster University is aimed at assessing the efficacy, uptake and implementation of mitigation measures, to protect water resources in a rural agricultural environment.
