The role of economic instruments in managing diffuse nutrient pollution A focus on phosphorus (ENRR462)

The European Environment Agency has identified eutrophication (by nutrients) of inland and saline waters as a pan-European problem of major concern. This concern is re-iterated by the Environment Agency (EA), which has identified it as one of its top ten priorities in freshwaters; the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), which identifies eutrophication as its second and third most important priorities for lochs and rivers respectively; and English Nature (EN), which identifies it as being one of the largest problems facing the ecology of freshwaters in the UK and elsewhere.
