CLEARANCE-CircuLar Economy Approach to River pollution by Agricultural Nutrients with use of Carbon-storing Ecosystems

Riverine wetlands provide a range of ecosystem services: cultural (esthetics, recreation and education), provisioning (storage and retention of water), supporting (soil formation and nutrient cycling), regulating (regulation of erosion, natural hazards, hydrological flows, climate, water purification and waste treatment). The project CLEARANCE focuses on the role of wetland buffer zones (WBZ) in agricultural catchments that clean water from excess nutrients before it reaches the river, as well as substantially contribute to the natural purification of river water. The project aims to demonstrate this role of WBZs using model catchments, while at the same time examining synergies between water purification and other ecosystem services. More
