The Broadland Catchment Partnership has produced maps that highlight areas within the Broadland Rivers Catchment which provide, or have the potential to provide, a range of benefits (ecosystem services) to society.
In 2014 stakeholders, including farmers, agreed which ecosystem services and data to use and developed a scoring system. Provision of food, energy or materials is a key service from agricultural land but the extent can vary according to the suitability of the land for providing other ecosystem services including provision of: clean water; flood risk reduction; wildlife habitat; carbon storage; and recreation.
Access the maps on the Broads Authority website.
