On 22-23 September 2014 the Improvement Programme for England’s Natura 2000 Sites (IPENS) hosted a workshop on atmospheric nitrogen deposition and Natura 2000. The workshop brought together national experts and stakeholders to:
1) Share the outcomes of recent research initiatives.
2) Discuss the development of measures and mechanisms to reduce atmospheric nitrogen impacts on Natura 2000 sites.
3) Discuss the potential development of Site Nitrogen Action Plans (SNAPs).
Representatives from different sectors (agriculture, energy industry, transport) and from government bodies as well as NGOs participated in the workshop and provided recommendations for the development of an IPENS Theme Action Plan on this subject.
